Mark your calendars and book your Ticket to Explore: The annual open house at NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory is coming up the weekend of June 4th and 5th, and for the first time the free tickets must be booked in advance. They become available online Monday April 25th at 9:00am, so settle in front of the computer with a big mug of coffee and get in a virtual queue; these golden tickets are likely to go fast. Each applicant can reserve up to five spaces. If you score, you could follow up with an afternoon at the Science Center, where you and the kids can have a blast checking out Endeavor and other space related oddities.
Leave your computer home the rest of the week and head out into our fair city. Dance with Camille Saint Sëins’ Carnival of the Animals at the Broad Theatre in Santa Monica, revisit Marty McFly at a free screening of Back to the Future, or keep the space theme going by contemplating the universe at Garvey Ranch Observatory in Monterey Park, where you can make your own telescope and party with the stars.
