 Jet Propulsion Laboratory - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL), in La CaƱada Flintridge, near Los Angeles, California, USA, builds and operates unmanned spacecraft for the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA).
JPL is a federally funded research and development center (FFRDC) managed and operated by Caltech under a contract with NASA.
In 1995 JPL once again got involved in propulsion design, issuing a contract to Wickman Spacecraft and Propulsion Company to develop a rocket engine and jet engine that could directly burn the Martian atmosphere of carbon dioxide.
