NASA’s Wallops Flight Facility invites the public to get a closer look at the activities inside the gates from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., Saturday, June 27, 2015 as it celebrates its 70th Anniversary.

During the day, participants will be able to tour many of the facilities including those for sounding rockets, scientific balloons, the launch range, and aircraft operations. In addition, there will be exhibits from various organization that operate at Wallops, aircraft on display, presentations, workshops, entertainment, refreshments and activities for kids.

Bill Wrobel, Director of Wallops, said, “Wallops has played a significant role in aerospace research in the United States since its first launch on June 27, 1945. In addition, the Facility has been a part of the Delmarva community and we want to open our gates and share this legacy.”

“We traditionally have opened our gates to the public every five years. This year’s Open House is lining up to be our biggest and best yet,” Wrobel said.

One event new this year will be a 5K run/walk on the Wallops’ runways. In addition, tours will be conducted of the launch facilities on Wallops Island. Pre-registration, which is expected to open in late May, will be required for both of these events.
