September marks anniversary of NCAR's move to Mesa Lab

Sep 15, 2012

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."
