BOULDERCOLORADO

Boulder is a small town nestled at the foot the Rocky Mountains, known for its active residents, historic downtown district, high tech economy, beautiful hiking trails and 300 days of annual sunshine. Sophisticated, artsy, and progressive, Boulder is home to numerous institutes focusing on: astrophysics, earth observing spacecraft hardware, space weather prediction, atmospheric modeling and satellite command / mission operations. It attracts countless outdoor sports enthusiasts with its amiable climate, vast open spaces, and close proximity to the Rocky Mountain National Park. Set at the foot of the iconic Flatirons of the Rocky Mountains, the city is just 30 miles northwest of downtown Denver and only 74 feet higher than the Mile High City.

The State of Colorado is the second largest space economy in the nation with strong entities in Space Sciences, the headquarters for the United Launch Alliance, the location of development for the Orion Crew Vehicle, and the home of the Air Force Space Command.

In addition, Boulder is the home of Ball Aerospace, a $200 million/yr in revenue company which focuses on spacecraft systems and optical instrumentation (built all four instruments currently installed on the Hubble Space Telescope). Boulder is also the home of the University of Colorado, the #1 public University in NASA research funding, fifteen astronaut alumni and is the only institution in the world to have designed and built instruments that have visited every planet in the solar system (including Pluto with an arrival date of 2015).

The city has a wide spectrum of restaurants ranging from low cost, casual restaurants like The Sink and Cheba Hut to finer restaurants like Sushi Tora and The Oceanaire.
