About Vandenberg Airforce Base:

Vandenberg Air Force Base is a Department of Defense space and missile testing base with a mission of placing satellites into polar orbit from the West Coast using expendable boosters. The base also leases launch pad facilities to Space X as well as California Spaceport in 1995. 

On this tour you will get a sneak peek at the Space launch Complex-10 which is the only landmark at Vandenberg AFB to be listed on the national Registry of Historic Places.  You will also get the chance to explore the Space and Missile Heritage Center and hear the story of the critical role Vandenberg AFB plays in launching commercial, national security, and scientific polar-orbiting satellites.

Event Schedule: 
10:30am Bus leaves La Cumbre Plaza in Santa Barbara (next to Sears)

Important Note:

The capacity for the bus we will be taking is 47. Because the bus is set at a fixed price, we need to make sure we get 47 attendees registered! If we don't hit capacity, we can either postpone the trip, or choose to pay more per person. Let’s make sure to recruit as many alumni members as possible!
