Houston Labs

    You probrbaly know that Texas is a hotspot for Science and Technology.

    I happen to be in Houston. While there's really no such thing as a Science company we do have labs. WHile there are alot in The Medical center doing research in the biomedical feilds I want to know are there any major labs in Houston.

    Big ones like goverment or corporate labs with hundreds of employees. I know we've got NASA but I don't know if there are any really big laboratory areas down there.

    I work at Area 52 120 miles south of Houston as secretary. They experiment with chemical engineering. It seems quite alien to me sometimes.

    Exxon and Shell have research labs in Houston. I lived near the Shell facility, about 30 years ago, and I spent time at the Exxon facility 30+ years ago when I was in Explorer Scouts.

    There are places like Houston Advanced Research Center - http://www.harc.edu/harc/Content/About/ShowStatic.aspx/8 [Broken]

    Universities like U of H and Rice have research facilities.
