Deep Space Craft opens the door to interplanetary flight
Deep Space Craft opens the door to interplanetary flight. It looks at this world from the vantage point of real operations on a specific mission, and follows a natural trail from the day-to-day working of this particular spacecraft, through the functioning of all spacecraft to the collaboration of the various disciplines to produce the results for which a spacecraft is designed. This highly focused, insider’s guide to interplanetary space exploration uses many examples of previous and current endeavors
The NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) is a worldwide network of .
The NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) is a worldwide network of . spacecraft communication facilities, located in the United States (California), Spain (Madrid), and Australia (Canberra), that supports NASA's interplanetary spacecraft missions. It also performs radio and radar astronomy observations for the exploration of the Solar System and the universe, and supports selected Earth-orbiting missions. DSN is part of the NASA Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL).
The Deep Space Network is NASA's worldwide radio telescope array that makes it possible to communicate with . JPL continues to control the DSN from its facility in Pasadena, California.
The Deep Space Network is NASA's worldwide radio telescope array that makes it possible to communicate with spacecraft. Set adjacent to the mission control center, the DSN control room contains rows of computer banks and several large screens that track the various missions. The room itself is dark, lit primarily by the glow of the screens. At least five engineers oversee and operate the DSN seven days a week.
NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) is a collection of antennas at three sites around the globe used to communicate with interplanetary spacecraft . Explorer 1 was designed and built by JPL, under contract to the .
NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN) is a collection of antennas at three sites around the globe used to communicate with interplanetary spacecraft missions. DSN also is used by radio and radar astronomers to observe the Solar System and the Universe. The international network also supports selected Earth-orbiting missions. To track that launch and the satellite in space, the forerunner of the Deep Space Network was established. JPL set up portable radio tracking stations in Nigeria, Singapore, and California to receive telemetry and plot the orbit of Explorer 1.

Six different spacecraft were exchanging information via NASA's Deep Space Network at the time this photo was taken, all routed through the Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex, in California's Mojave Desert. That's Voyager 1 talking via the big 70-metre DSS-14 dish (shown to the right), from the spacecraft's location on the edge of interstellar space. Cassini is on the smaller DSS-15 antenna. MOM', which is India's Mars Orbiter Mission, is communicating via DSS-24.
* Details of the famous Goldstone and Canberra antenna complexes * DSN Operations and Maintenance information * Using the Deep Space Network for science * -Solar System Dynamics and the Basics of Space Flight
There are video clips with a short DSN Story, and a time-lapse view of antenna construction in QuickTime and MPEG formats.
