Never Stop Asking Questions
What if we only sought to understand the world as it is, rather than explore how it could be? It would mean the difference between our society getting by, and getting better. Since our inception, United Technologies Research Center (UTRC) has taken curiosity to that other level; not just questioning what’s possible but actually making it happen. You may not realize just how much we’ve helped make modern life possible. But—if you’re curious enough—you’ll discover exactly what we’ve done and uncover how we’ve already changed tomorrow.
