A lovely little scientific research and development company enlisted by the American MoD to produce shower curtains, among other intra-dimensional projects. Responsible for the production of the Genetic Lifeform and Disk Operating System (GLaDOS), the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device (Portal gun, if you prefer), and many, many innovative iterations of the world-famous shower curtain, Aperture are secretive in their operations and productive in their exploits. Future projects include life-enhancing gel, spherical personality buddies and tractor beams (or excursion funnels).

A company founded in 1953 by Cave Johnson, originally to create shower curtains for the U.S. Military, but went in a different direction after Johnson went insane from mercury poisoning. Most notable works include the Aperture Science Handheld Portal Device, and the supercomputer GLaDOS. Considered a rival to Black Mesa.

Aperture Science is a scientific research company founded by Cave Johnson. It was once called "Aperture Fixtures" but then named "Aperture Science Innovators" to make the shower company more hygienic. The company was actually focused more on science. Long story short, In 1998, the robot, GLaDOS, was turned on during the holiday, "Bring your daughter to work day". Unfortunately, GLaDOS became self-aware and filled the Enrichment Centre with neurotoxin, killing the scientists. Aperture Science was closed and turned into testing area, run by GLaDOS.
Aperture Science. We do what we must because we can. For the good of all of us-- except the ones who are dead.
