The Good  
SCIENCE!!
ROBOTS!!

The Bad  
-- It can get quite hot in Pasadena this time of year.
-- It does get kind of crowded at some exhibits, so it's generally advised to get in early.

Notes  
This popular event celebrates JPL's accomplishments with exhibits and demonstrations about the Laboratory's ongoing research and space exploration. Many of the Lab's scientists and engineers are on hand to answer questions about how spacecraft are sent to other planets, how scientists utilize space technologies to explore Earth and how researchers are searching for planets beyond the solar system.

Admission and parking is free.

Things we might see
-- Mission Control Room (tour)
-- Robo Dome - featuring two 700 pound robots gliding in an arena under artificial stars.
-- The "Ask A Scientist" booth -- All science questions welcome.
