Plum Brook Station is a satellite of NASA’s Glenn Research Center situated on 6,400 acres of land in Sandusky, Ohio.

The Plum Brook Station facilities possess testing capabilities unmatched anywhere else in the world. Since 1958, NASA has used Plum Brook Station to test highly specialized space-bound hardware used in the Titan IV, the Mars Pathfinder Air Bag Landing System, and numerous other cutting edge technologies.
