The Ames Research Center is located in the Silicon Valley near the city of Mountain View, about 11 miles northwest of San Jose and roughly 35 miles southeast of San Francisco. It is a major research center for NASA (National Aeronautics and Space Administration) and plays a part in many NASA missions. It leads such projects as robotic lunar exploration, supercomputing, astrobiology, and other important space-related programs. The center was formed in 1939.
The beautiful views of the Santa Cruz Mountains inspired the naming of Mountain View, a city that began as a stagecoach stop in the 19th century for those traveling between San Francisco and San Jose. Mountain View is an important high technology city. Companies headquartered here include Google, Intuit, Symantec, LinkedIn, Mozilla Foundation, and Synopsys.
