Space exploration often relies on solar power. Learn about our work in developing everything from new materials for lightweight, highly efficient solar cells, to large roll out solar arrays used on the space station, DART mission, and scheduled for Gateway’s Power and Propulsion Element to explore the Moon. You’ll also learn about materials like perovskite and the effort to manufacture solar cells in space!

Thank you so much for your interest in NASA Glenn’s tour program. We’re very excited to offer in-person tours this year and it looks like you’re excited, too! Our team has received an overwhelmingly positive response from the community, and we couldn’t be happier.

Due to the popularity of the tour program and the limited space available in this test facility, registration for this tour is now closed.

We are continuing to explore additional opportunities for you to connect with us. In the meantime, we encourage you to visit NASA Glenn’s Visitor Center at Great Lakes Science Center.
