The Laboratory for Atmospheric and Space Physics (LASP) in Boulder, CO, has been managing Mission Operations for Kepler and continues to do so for the K2 mission. I had a chance to visit LASP and tour the operations center which was even cooler than I had imagined. LASP is a very exciting place, they are known as “the world’s only research institute to have sent instruments to all eight planets and Pluto”. Here are some photos from my visit.
