JPL is announcing a new approach to that one special weekend a year when they open their doors to the public and put on display all the ways they are exploring the solar system and beyond.

It’s called “A Ticket to Explore JPL.” And to be a part of it, you MUST have a ticket. They’re trying this new approach because the enormous public response to the traditional “come one, come all” “Open House,” has been overwhelming.

“A Ticket to Explore JPL” will take place the weekend of June 4th and 5th. Tickets are free but limited and they will be distributed on a first come, first served basis. The maximum number of tickets per family is five. And to enter JPL you must have your ticket in hand and with a matching ID if you are 18 or older. Tickets are not transferrable.

Tickets will be available as of April 25 at 9 a.m. Pacific Daylight Time.
