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!
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.
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.
