hand to provide free tours of the lower range weekly on Thursdays from June
12 through July 10, ending with the Golden Days Open House on July 17.
Tours will begin at 2 p.m. and last approximately one hour. Visitors are
asked to check in at the range’s administration building upon arrival.
The Geophysical Institute owns and operates Poker Flat, the only
non-federal, university-owned rocket range in the world. It is located 30
miles north of Fairbanks, off the Steese Highway.
