The Other Side
Voyager 1 left its home planet on a September morning 36 years ago. Now, after traveling farther than any other human artifact, it has made its way to the space between the stars.

Using Space Wisely
In the Space Structures Laboratory at Caltech, engineers are building and testing a variety of unique models that represent how objects fill space—and how they might be manipulated to take up a little less of it.

Lab Space
The work done in Caltech’s offices and laboratories is anything but typical—and that uniqueness is often reflected in the design of the spaces within which the Institute’s researchers do their most creative work.

Lighting Up the Dark Ages
The universe’s cosmic dawn represents the last frontier of observational cosmology, which is why Caltech scientists are pushing the limits of present-day telescopes, trying to capture images of the first generation of stars right after they formed.

The Space Between
Caltech geologists and engineers explore how the nooks and crannies amid particles play a key role in creating landscapes through processes like waterfalls, landslides, and avalanches.
