NASA Langley Research Center Open House

Saturday, October 21, 2017

The public is invited to an open house at NASA Langley Research Center on Saturday, Oct. 21, to celebrate the center's 100th anniversary. You're invited inside Langley's gates to tour unique research facilities, including wind tunnels, laboratories and a historic aircraft hangar. NASA says "visitors will also be able to see where pioneers from the golden age of aviation forged revolutionary ideas and where America’s original astronauts, the Mercury 7, started their training. This large-scale open house will showcase contributions past and present while also looking toward the future." The open house will feature facilities tours, lectures, and hands-on activities both indoors and outdoors. There also will be a special “Kids Zone” for young explorers. Langley is NASA's first research facility. It was founded on July 17, 1917.
