Deep Space Network
NASAÂ’s Deep Space Network (DSN) is the worldÂ’s largest and most sensitive scientific telecommunication system. It consists of an array of giant radio antennas spanning across the globe used for supporting interplanetary spacecraft missions. It has three complexes in California, Spain and Australia. It provides radar and radio astronomy observations for increasing the understanding of the solar system and the overall universe.
The American space agency is planning to upgrade the DSN to enable it to communicate with more spacecraft than ever before and support evolving space mission needs as humans are looking to become an interplanetary species.
