  Jet Propulsion Laboratory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
JPL also manages the world-wide Deep Space Network, with facilities in California's Mojave Desert, in Spain near Madrid and in Australia near Canberra.
Almost all of the 177 acre (0.7 km²) JPL campus is actually located in the city of La Canada Flintridge, California, but the JPL main gate and several buildings are in Pasadena, so it maintains a Pasadena address (4800 Oak Grove Drive, Pasadena, CA 91109).
From this study, JPL developed the Corporal rocket which was used in the Korean War.

 [No title]
The Tumbleweed Rover, currently under development at the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) in Pasadena, California, is a large, wind-blown, inflated ball, which carries an instrument payload in its interior.
Various versions of this basic concept have been proposed in the past in the U.S. and France, but JPL is the first to actually develop the ball and prove its feasibility experimentally and analytically.
In the case of Mars, a 6-m diameter ball is easily capable of climbing over one meter rocks and up 25º hills (well over 99.9% of the Martian surface) with typical global winds that occur during the southern summer.
