About the Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) is a federally funded research and development center and NASA field center since 1958 located in La Cañada Flintridge, California, United States. JPL is managed by the California Institute of Technology (Caltech) for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration. The laboratory’s primary function is the construction and operation of robotic planetary spacecraft, though it also conducts Earth-orbit and astronomy missions. It is also responsible for operating NASA’s Deep Space Network. Among the laboratory’s current major active projects are the Mars Science Laboratory mission (which includes the Curiosity rover), the Cassini–Huygens mission orbiting Saturn, the Mars Exploration Rovers (Spirit and Opportunity), the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter, the Dawn mission to the dwarf planet Ceres and asteroid Vesta, the Juno spacecraft en route to Jupiter, the Nuclear Spectroscopic Telescope Array (NuSTAR) X-ray telescope, and the Spitzer Space Telescope. NASA JPL remains a leading force in scientific research and in stimulating public interest in aerospace exploration, as well as science and technology in general.
