NASA Ames to open campus to public

Register now for two-mile self-guided walking tour

As it celebrates its 75th year, NASA Ames Research Center is holding a rare open house event on Saturday, Oct. 18, allowing a close look at the space research center's many technological wonders.

The free event will be the first time NASA Ames has opened its doors to the public since 1997. There will be a two-mile long self-guided walking tour of the facilities with demonstrations and displays of technology developed at Ames over its 75-year history. Officials say attendees will get a peek at its large wind tunnels, a simulated martian landscape and a jumbo jet fitted with an infrared telescope known as SOFIA.

Reservations are required; tickets are available starting Tuesday, Sept. 2, on Eventbrite. Ames is billing the event as "pedestrian only" which means no parking will be available at Ames for the event. Shuttles will be provided to and from local transit centers.
