Summary

March is the 50th anniversary of the first rocket launch from Poker Flat Research Range. Come commemorate half a century of research with us at our open house celebration.

For this special event we will have a tour of our upper range facilities including LIDAR, Telemetry and the Davis Science Operations Center, which are not part of our summer walking tour. You will not want to miss this rare opportunity!

In addition, we will be offering science talks and demonstrations.

Light refreshments will be provided.

This event is free and family friendly!

Gates open at 7:30 p.m. and the event goes until midnight in hopes that the Aurora will join us.

If you don’t want to drive, there will be two round-trip shuttles departing from the Geophysical Institute. Shuttles are free but, as space is limited, reservations are recommended.
