Here's a chance to see how the big kids play! FYI, Goldstone is near Barstow,



                  SATURDAY, APRIL 19, 1997

                    9:00 A.M. - 3:00 P.M.

On Saturday, April 19, 1997, JPL will partner with AlliedSignal
Corporation to host an Open House at the Goldstone Deep Space
Communications Complex.

No sign up, or registration is required.  This event is open to
the public.  At the Goldstone Complex Guard Gate, visitors will be
directed to parking areas, and transportation to antenna sites
will be by bus.

First stop will be at the Mars site to see the 70-meter antenna
and view the mission operations room.  Safety regulations do not
permit public access to the antenna pedestal or dish.

Next, the bus will drive visitors to the Apollo site.  Here there
will be public access to the pedestal of one of the new 34-meter
Beam Wave Guide antennas. JPL planetary missions will also have
exhibits in this area.

The bus then returns guests to the main Echo site for other
displays, exhibits, demonstrations, and a video screening.  The
cafeteria will be serving light meals and drinks, and souvenirs
will be available for purchase.

During the Open House a special event will be staged to dedicate
the three new 34-meter antennas at the Apollo site. Representatives
from the contracting companies who erected the antennas will be
joined by members of JPL's management in a short ceremony of
official dedication to be held at 1:00 p.m..

Complex is available as a link from that site, or directly at
