NASA Langley Research Center Annouces pubic open house

Meet an astronaut and watch a space capsule splash-tested. Check out more than a dozen NASA labs, and see where the original astronauts practiced landing on the moon. All that and more is on the agenda for NASA Langley Research Center's pubic open house from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 22. Visitors will see the latest Langley science and technology, talk with researchers and take part in hands-on activities.

The open house is in celebration of Langley¹s 95th anniversary as the nation¹s first civilian aeronautics lab, opened in 1917, and later the birthplace of the U.S. space program. Today's Langley is helping develop spacecraft to send humans beyond Earth orbit; working on technologies to make aircraft safer, more efficient and environmentally friendly, and studying Earth's atmosphere to better understand and protect our planet.

Buses will be provided to take visitors to tour stops.
