JPL Team Shows the Public Why Experiments Should be Performed in Space

Employing a drop tower microgravity simulator and a tableful of liquid nitrogen tricks, a team of volunteers from the JPL low temperature microgravity project spent Saturday and Sunday explaining microgravity effects to visitors to the JPL Open House. While attendance numbers were somewhat reduced over previous years, the microgravity displays were thronged by the crowds over both days. As is shown in the photo, curiosity about science knows no age boundaries.
