The popular public open house at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in La Cañada Flintridge, scheduled for June 8-9 this year, has been canceled due to budget limitations. JPL posted a notice calling the annual event suspended. "If budget considerations improve, JPL hopes to host an Open House at a future date, perhaps as early as fall 2013," the NASA facility said. About 40,000 people attended the open house last year. "Open house is an extremely popular event, both for the public and for JPL staff," spokeswoman Veronica McGregor told the Pasadena Star-News. "Many JPL employees look forward to interacting with the public at this event."
