  • 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.

  • The deadline for our summer 2018 ATLAS internship program is December 31st. The ATLAS internship program is for STEM majors attending HBCUs, HSIs, and other minority-serving institutions. Learn more and submit applications at

  • This December, more than 100 APL staff members and their families gathered at Arlington National Cemetery to lay wreaths on the graves of service members who gave their lives in defense of the nation.

  • How and when did the two moons of Mars form? APL is building an instrument to find out.

    Back to the Red Planet

    NASA has tapped the Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, to build a science instrument for an upcoming Japan-led sample return mission to the two moons of Mars. The instrument, a sophisticated gamma-ray and neutron spectrometer named MEGANE (pronounced meh-gah-nay, meaning "eyeglasses" in Japanese), will help scientists resolve one of the most enduring mysteries of the Red Planet: when and how the small moons formed.

  • Last month, our Hispanic Awareness Club organized an emergency supply drive to support hurricane relief efforts in Puerto Rico.

    “As a Puerto Rican woman representing the Hispanic professional community at APL, I couldn’t be prouder of my workplace,” said Kathy Santos, a biologist and member of the Hispanic Awareness Club at APL. “I am so very thankful and appreciative of the outpouring of donations and the empathetic nature of the staff. It has sincerely blown me away.”

    APL Staff Members Come through in Force to Support Puerto Rico Hurricane Relief Efforts

    For two weeks, boxes in APL lobbies and hallways served as collection points for supplies. Lab staff members came through quickly and in force. The HAC collected more than 14,000 pounds of bottled water, more than 3,500 pounds of nonperishable food and canned goods, many boxes of diapers, baby wipes, and formula, and much-needed medical supplies and other essentials.

  • We're adding a new building to our campus. It will house about 650 staff members, making it our largest facility yet.

    Johns Hopkins Applied Physics Laboratory Breaks Ground for Research and Development Facility

    The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory (APL) in Laurel, Maryland, broke ground Oct. 16 on what will be its largest building, a blend of complex labs and office space that will primarily house APL's Research and Exploratory Development Department.
