NASA Madrid Deep Space Communications Complex – Madrid, Spain v0.5.0
NASA Madrid Deep Space Communications Complex
The Madrid complex is part of a global network that has two other centers in Canberra, Australia and in Goldstone, California, USA. The geographical location of these, approximately 120 degrees apart in length, has been chosen to allow vehicles to maintain contact with a ground station, regardless of the daily movement of the Earth’s rotation.
The network is internationally known as DSN, Deep Space Network, and it is directed and managed by JPL, Jet Propulsion Laboratory, in Pasadena, California. It currently constitutes the biggest and more sensitive telecommunications system for scientific applications in the world.
