The Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory’s work in space-related research continues to push the envelope of science. Lab researchers designed and built NASA’s Parker Solar Probe, launched in August from Florida’s Kennedy Space Center to fly through the sun’s corona, work that also helps inform hypersonic research.

In a world where the U.S. Defense Department is facing asymmetric threats, department leaders are counting on long-term research and development to provide primary solutions to protect the nation. For the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Laboratory, which has helped create technologies that have changed the course of history, the pressure is on to find the next significant contribution, says the laboratory’s director, Ralph Semmel. “When you look back in history, we had nine of those [groundbreaking technologies], so we are holding ourselves to a very high bar,” Semmel says. “But the key is that we don’t know which technology is actually going to turn into a defining innovation.”
