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 five areas of research: Humpback Whale Song ; Instrumentation for Oceanic Studies ; The Magellan Project – Wave-Powered Circumnavigation of the Earth;The Electrical Behavior of Plants.

To watch a wonderful home-style movie on how Jupiter began, helped develop the Wave Glider and launched Liquid Robotics Inc.

Private Oasis for Sale

Private Oasis for Sale

So appropriately named by one of the Owner’s Hawaiian friends. This home is located at Kohala Ranch which is a 4,000 acre gated community. situated at a highly desirable elevation of 900′ offering sunset views most of the year and moon rises in the back behind the mountains. On clear nights enjoy the sites of the Milky Way above or the moon sets late in the night as you watch the bright stars moving and dancing in the sky. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home is decorated in a mixture of vintage Hawiianna and eclectic decor and local art throughout. The view of the ocean attracts your attention as soon as you arrive at the front door and look across the expansive living area with high ceilings out through oversized glass sliding doors and large covered lanais across the entire ocean side of the home. “Peace” is what most guests say almost immediately upon arriving at the home. The home is located on a flat setting with all of the home being on one level and feels very tucked into the mountain side offering serenity and privacy not easily found into today’s hectic lifestyles. The birds and tropical plantings abound.
