Sunset Over JPL

Pasadena, CA -- Tucked in the foothills of Pasadena* exists a small village of structures, laboratories and offices called Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL). It is here, in the shadow of the San Gabriel Mountains that scientists and engineers explore outer space by constructing and controlling robotic planetary spacecraft. JPL also assists Hollywood writers and motion picture production experts by advising them with scientific accuracy.

*Although the address is Pasadena, the JPL campus is actually located in La Canada/Flintridge
