October 15th I’m attending the first NASA Social to Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex in the Mojave Valley.
From the NASA site: Sixty-five of NASA’s social media followers will have a rare opportunity to tour the agency’s Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex in California’s Mojave Desert during a NASA Social on Monday, Oct. 15, 2012.
Goldstone is one of three NASA Deep Space Network (DSN) complexes strategically placed around the world. The complex provides the ability to communicate with spacecraft not only in orbit around Earth, but also in the farther reaches of our solar system.
Leading up to the Social, organizers put all of the attendees in touch with each other, both formally and informally. Here is a sampling of those who will enjoy this adventure with me!
