About Jupiter

The Jupiter Research Foundation is a 501(c)(3) non-profit scientific research organization. Established in 2003, the Foundation is dedicated to developing and applying new technologies for monitoring and understanding the natural world and sharing them with the public and the academic community.
When these studies result in embodiments that have commercial value, they may be pursued via appropriate joint ventures or the spin-off of independent commercial companies. One such venture resulted in the founding of Liquid Robotics, Inc. in 2007.

We are currently engaged in three areas of research: Humpback Whale Song, Wave Glider Instrumentation, and The Electrical Behavior of Plants.

Watch a wonderful home-style movie, "The Whale Sings", on how Jupiter began, helped develop the Wave Glider, and launched Liquid Robotics Inc.

We often get asked "Why Jupiter?"  Our Talk Story section will help explain, and is also a great spot to get current updates.

Also, don't forget to check out our Live Whales audio!

We have locations in Los Altos, CA and Puako, HI. If you'd like to contact us, please email admin@jupiterfoundation.org
