  • Popular Science named Parker Solar Probe the innovation of the year for 2018. APL designed and built the spacecraft for NASA and we are so proud of our engineers and scientists who made this groundbreaking innovation possible!

    The Parker Solar Probe is the single greatest innovation of 2018

    There is no shortage of innovation in NASA's mission roster. Whether you are landing on Mars or entering orbit around an alien planet, missions to space require mind-blowing technological advances. This year the most ingenious spacecraft accolade (and our award for Innovation of the Year) goes to NASA's Parker Solar Probe.

  • Our engineers and researchers are always looking for opportunities to apply their expertise to new, complex challenges. In his latest paper, APL's Dr. Paul Stockton offers his perspective on defending our nation's electric grid.

    Press Release

    The study also recommends how power companies and government agencies can craft emergency orders to sustain electric service to vital military bases, regional hospitals, and other critical facilities that an adversary may seek to cripple.

  • Parker Solar Probe--designed, built and managed by APL--launched last week. The historic mission is on its way to our Sun's blazing solar atmosphere, making its closest approach at 3.8 million miles. Parker will reach speeds of roughly 430,000 miles per hour, setting the record for the fastest-moving object made by humanity.

    Parker Solar Probe

    Parker Solar Probe will swoop to within 4 million miles of the sun's surface, facing heat and radiation like no spacecraft before it. Launching in 2018, Parker Solar Probe will provide new data on solar activity and make critical contributions to our ability to forecast major space-weather events that impact life on Earth.

  • APL was ranked one of the top 100 companies for IT professionals! According to Computerworld's 2018 Best Places to Work in IT, "stellar benefits, challenging projects and plenty of opportunities for growth" are the things IT employees are most enthusiastic about at companies like APL.

  • Experts at APL are weighing in on school safety. Read the full report here.

    Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Report Advises on Planning for School Safety and Security Technologies

    Waddell says the chapter on technology implementation planning should be especially valuable to school administrators, security directors, principals and other decision-makers. "The chapter's perspective on risk management is foundational to school safety technology planning, integration and implementation," he said. "It focuses on how to assess the need for technologies and to develop a justification for their implementation.

  • It's never too early to make New Year's Eve plans. APL will be ringing in 2019 with a historic exploration of the unknown.

    APL Plans Next New Year's Eve: In the Kuiper Belt, with New Horizons

    In just under a year - shortly after midnight Eastern Time on Jan. 1, 2019 - NASA's New Horizons spacecraft, built and operated by the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory in Laurel, Maryland, will buzz by the most primitive and most distant object ever explored.

  • Deadlines for summer 2018 internships are quickly approaching! Apply now.

    College Internship

    APL offers science and engineering internships each summer. The Laboratory's internship program provides practical work experience and an introduction to APL. Students spend the summer working with APL scientists and engineers, conducting research, developing leadership skills, and growing professionally.

  • APL was ranked #8 on Fast Company's most innovative companies in the space industry.

    Johns Hopkins APL Named as One of Fast Company's 2018 "Most Innovative Companies"

    "We are very proud of our history in space exploration, including the New Horizons mission's historic first flyby of Pluto two years ago. Right now, we could not be more excited about the breakthroughs we have achieved with Parker Solar Probe," said APL Director Ralph Semmel.
