NASA is coming back to the DC area’s largest Maker Faire in downtown Silver Spring on September 14th and bringing a variety of interesting space technology, including its Infrared camera, for you to try out. What is infrared light? Infrared light is commonly referred to as heat rays. With NASA’s James Webb space telescope Infrared Camera, you are able to view the invisible heat rays on your body. Come visit the Webb telescope booth and learn about how the telescope can reveal the hidden stars and solar system forming with the cocoons of dust.
Stop by the NASA booth at the Faire and try out astronaut tools and gloves, see NASA’s First Robotics Team, learn about space communications, and much more!
