Photo Essay: Jet Propulsion Laboratory Open House, 5/3/09

As LAist has mentioned in the past, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory's Annual Open House is one of the best free events in town. This year, May 2-3, kids and adults alike enjoyed exhibits, demonstrations, 3-D Mars photos, dancing robots and more. Plus, it's not every day you get to ask a rocket scientist a question!

If you'd like to attend next year, keep checking the JPL website for 2010 dates. In the meantime, feel free to download some of JPL's great computer wallpaper and check out LAist's 2008 photo essay about the Phoenix Mars Lander.
