The Aerospace Industry in Boulder

Behind the exciting shuttle launches and satellite imagery that make the news are teams of researchers and scientists — many of whom happen to work here in Boulder, Colorado.

Boulder's aerospace legacy dates back to when Ball Aerospace and Technologies Corporation was founded here in 1956. Since then, many more labs have launched in Boulder, and U.S. space missions have carried 20 University of Colorado alumni astronauts into space, including Scott Carpenter, a native Boulderite who was the second American to orbit Earth. 

"Pioneering in space was something I would willingly give my life for."
—Scott Carpenter, Astronaut from Boulder

If you're planning an event for an aerospace-related group, choosing Boulder will get them excited to register and attend.
