The Associates private tour of the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is back! Start your day off experiencing the home to some of the greatest interplanetary science and learn about its rich history. You'll be transported onto the set of your favorite sci-fi movie as you explore the Mission Control Center where flights and missions are monitored. As JPL's motto suggests, space enthusiasts will "dare mighty things" as they get a first-hand look at what's new for the future of space travel and exploration! Learn about the latest developments on the Mars 2020 mission, which will answer important questions about the potential for life on Mars, to the GRACE_FO mission where satellites were launched into space to orbit Earth and track our planet's ever-changing water levels.
