NASA Visits Virginia Baseball Game | Langley Research Center

NASA Visits Virginia Baseball Game | Langley Research Center

NASA's Langley Research Center has nearly 200 facilities on 764 acres in Hampton, Virginia. It employs about 3,400 civil servants and contractors. Langley works to improve aviation, to expand our understanding of Earth’s atmosphere, and to develop new technologies for space exploration.

NASA Langley is having an open house on Saturday, Oct. 21, 2023, from 9am to 4pm!
Register here:
This fall, visit Langley and see NASA facilities in person, hear from experts on the latest missions at NASA, and take part in STEM activities. 
Mark your calendars and tell your friends!

The Langley Research Center (LaRC or NASA Langley) is the oldest of NASA's field centers. LaRC has focused primarily on aeronautical research but has also tested space hardware such as the Apollo Lunar Module. In addition, many of the earliest high-profile space missions were planned and designed on-site.

Established in 1917 by the National Advisory Committee for Aeronautics (NACA), the Langley Research Center devotes two-thirds of its programs to aeronautics and the rest to space. LaRC researchers use more than 40 wind tunnels to study and improve aircraft and spacecraft safety, performance, and efficiency. Between 1958 and 1963, when NASA (the successor agency to NACA) started Project Mercury, LaRC served as the main office of the Space Task Group.
