LASP began in 1948, initially operating at CU Boulder as the Upper Air Laboratory. Since those early days launching payloads on V-2 rockets in the deserts of White Sands, New Mexico, LASP has grown to become the world’s only research institute to have sent space science instruments to every planet in the solar system, and to Pluto.
Come celebrate 70 years of exploring the Earth, our solar system, and beyond.
We’ll have tours of all our facilities and LASP Director Daniel Baker will present a colloquium on the history of LASP at 4 p.m. in the SPSC building.
