PARI’S MISSION IS TO REVEAL THE UNSEEN AND EMPOWER PEOPLE TO REACH THEIR NEXT FRONTIER

Join and be the first to learn about PARI news and events in our monthly newsletter

PARI has the knowledge and experience, as well as the equipment built by NASA, to spark interest and provide a path for the next generation of space scientists and the advancement of their future.

Space sciences and their underlying disciplines touch every aspect of new technology development.

From food to communication, transportation to public safety, space is the next frontier and exploring it has become more important than ever.  If we don’t arm future explorers with what they need to reach the next frontier, they’ll miss opportunities and be left behind.

PARI can help inspire and prepare today’s learners for tomorrow’s exciting challenges.

 

STEM careers are rewarding in other ways as well.  Take a look at some of the numbers from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics Occupational Outlook Handbook.

Explore PARI's History

Construction first began at the PARI site in 1962, when NASA selected the location for one of the nation’s first satellite tracking stations. During the next three decades, NASA and the Department of Defense invested several hundred million dollars in the secure, 200-acre campus until operations were relocated in 1995. Recognizing its continued potential, Don and Jo Cline acquired the site in 1998 and PARI was born.
