Richland, Wa’s LIGO Hanford Second Saturday Public ToursGo on an educational tour with the whole family through LIGO Hanford’s Observatory Tours.

LIGO Hanford offers public drop-in tours at 1:30PM every second Saturday of the month, and this month, that will fall on March 8.

LIGO Tours
Get a chance to tour one of two gravitational wave observatories in the United States. During the tour, your LIGO host will provide a presentation detailing LIGO’s research. He will also conduct a walking tour of the Observatory and give tourists a chance to visit the control room.

Since plenty of walking will be done, it is recommended that tourists wear comfortable shoes. LIGO’s facilities are also wheelchair accessible, so even differently abled individuals can enjoy the tour.

Admission is free, so if you want more information on tour schedules and other details, please call (509) 372-8181 or visit LIGO’s website. Posted by Colleen D Lane on
