AVID Students and JPL--Showing Promise for the Future
On Thursday, October 1st, 25 AVID students toured the facilities at the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory. They learned about past, present, and future explorations of space made with JPL satellites and robots. Highlights of the tour included a close-hand glimpse of models of satellites, including Galileo and Cassini, as well as rover explorers. They got a close up look at a full scale model of the Mars Rover Curiosity, which has been in the news recently for its discovery of surface water on Mars. Students also got to see into JPL's Mission Control Room and the "Clean Room" where JPL builds the robots and satellites it sends into space.
