The month of September marks the anniversary of NCAR's move into the Mesa Laboratory. 46 years ago on September 19, 1966, NCAR began a six-week move into its new headquarters, the Mesa Laboratory, from a collection of rented offices off of 30th Street in Boulder. An early press release announced the move to the public, declaring that "moving a scientific research center is not quite as simple as moving the average household or business establishment."
