In this paper we will present an overview of the present and future of the Laser Cooling and Atomic Physics (LCAP) program in support of NASA’s Micro-gravity Fundamental Physics program. We will address the role played by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in developing the core technologies to support the wide variety of science that we envision will be explored by this program. © 2000 American Institute of Physics.
