"Founded in 1991, S.T.A.R. Labs is leading the world in exciting new technological discoveries that, as our motto suggests, are truly bringing us tomorrow's world today. Specializing in artificial intelligence, genetics, and meta-human stu... oh, are we in for an unexpected treat. It is my absolute honor to introduce you to the founder of S.T.A.R. Labs, the savior of Central City, Dr. Harrison Wells."

Scientific and Technical Advanced Research Laboratories, or S.T.A.R. Labs, was an advanced scientific facility in Central City that was one of this world's leaders in artificial intelligence, genetics, and meta-human studies. It was later destroyed along with the rest of Earth-2.


S.T.A.R. Labs was founded in 1991 by Harrison Wells, becoming one of this world's forerunners in artificial intelligence, genetics and meta-human studies. The Hunter Zolomon (masquerading as "Jay Garrick") and Harrison Wells of this reality had a public confrontation here as the S.T.A.R. founder sought to launch a new era in meta-human detection.[1]

After closing fifty-one breaches in Earth-1's Central City; Barry Allen, Cisco Ramon and Harrison Wells used the last remaining breach in S.T.A.R. Labs to travel to Earth-2, and ended up at S.T.A.R. Laboratories. Upon seeing how things were vastly different, Barry and Cisco excitedly took selfies with the S.T.A.R. Laboratories sign. They then encountered Henry Hewitt who gave them a fright, as his Earth-1 counterpart had a not-so-stellar record.[2] S.T.A.R. Labs on Earth-2 also has a Time Vault.

To protect Earth-1 Iris West from Savitar, she was sent to Earth-2, but Savitar tricked H.R. Wells into revealing Iris' location and successfully kidnapped her.

Since Jesse and Harry founded a team similar to Team Flash in Earth-2, it is implied this is its base of operations, much like Earth-1 S.T.A.R. Labs is the base of operations for Team Flash.
