JPL is one of the many places that the XAR Club has visited.  The pictures shown here were taken at a May 1998 JPL Open House.  The number of exhibits and the environmental testing chambers visited were somewhat overwhelming.  As a result, only a few of the pictures are posted to show representative scenes.
The background shows some of the tents that were set up for a great number of exhibits.  Those characters shown are:

This is a working model of the Mars Rover.  It is remotely controlled so that it can move around.  This Rover was feasibility tested in the Mojave Desert area.  Its movement was demonstrated here.
This is another view of the Rover being demonstrated.
