On Mars, in 3D

May 16th, 2005 · 4 Comments · Los Angeles


We went to the Jet Propulsion Laboratories Open House (the NASA affiliate that designed and operates the Mars Rovers) with friends D & H this weekend. Megan and I enjoyed the robot and 3D imaging departments, one feature was the ability to have yourself photographed with their 3D camera on Mars.

NASA/JPL is the best contemporary art group.

    Wow, the JPL open house sounds great! We’re in the middle of moving so we missed it. Will definitely have to go next year.

    The fine print is long lines. I probably won’t go again, but it’s really worth it the first time to see the robots alone. Free admission is nice too (if you don’t count income tax).

    Ha, that’s pretty funny about the tax. I guess admission is not so much free as prepaid 🙂 I don’t like long lines either, so I wonder if they allow artist field trips on non-open-house days.
