JPL has quite an interesting history. The more outrageous episodes, however, will probably not be on display at this weekend’s open house. Instead, visitors will be treated to exhibits and demonstrations of the lab’s ongoing research into space exploration, time travel, and ALIENS. Mostly the space exploring, though. There will be fun things for kids to do as well, though their precise nature has yet to be revealed to the public, for security reasons. Also, Segway users be warned: no Segways.
