Jet Propulsion Laboratory by Rebecca

On April 28th, we went to Jet Propulsion Laboratory that belonging to California Institute of Technology located in Pasadena, CA. 

A tour guide told us that JPL is the leading U.S. center for robotic exploration of the solar system, and has 19 spacecraft and 10 major instruments carrying out planetary, Earth science, and space-based astronomy missions. 

We saw a different kind of space vehicle, and the tour guide told us what they make for and how they work in space. Also, we visited mission control center that is for monitoring date and keep all thing running well. 

To my surprise, they have an interesting behavior at mission control center. That is. when they thinking or feel nervous, they used to eat peanuts.  

In the end of the tour, we got into a huge white room called clean room that is for clean all equipment and tools. I was so excited to see those interesting and complicated robots or space vehicle which I never see them before, except on TV. For the future, they plan to send one or two space vehicle to MARS in 2020. I hope they doing well and sent more picture or date back to Earth, then let more people know the universe because our world is but a small part of the universe.
