NASA Wallops Flight Facility Tour @ NASA's Wallops Flight Facility

Wallops Flight Facility is NASA’s primary facility for suborbital missions.  The facility launches sounding rockets, scientific balloons and performs aircraft research.  We will depart from the Ocean Pines Community Center and start our tour upon arrival at the facility at approximately 10:00 am. Steve Habeger, our tour companion, has a wealth of knowledge about Wallops due to his previous work on the base and will be available to answer questions.  Once we arrive, we will pick up an escort who will take us on a tour of the facility.  We will make several stops during the day, leaving enough time for lunch at the cafeteria (not included in fee).  Where we stop depends upon what the facility is working on at the time.  Call for more information or to register.
