Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Civil Space
We Lead Missions To Explore the Sun
APL Leads Parker Solar Probe — the fastest, hottest, first-ever mission to "touch" the Sun.
From The Sun to Pluto and Beyond
Our spacecraft and instruments have helped "touch" the Sun, measure and track Earth’s magnetosphere, search for ancient water on Mars, probe the mysteries of Pluto and measure the boundaries of our solar system before entering interstellar space. And those discoveries are just the beginning.
