Sey Ghamari Deep Space Netwok
DSN (Deep Space Network) 

Aerodyne team supports operation and maintenances of the NASA Deep Space Network complex in Goldstone, Calif.; the network's Deep Space Operations Center at JPL; and a facility in Monrovia, Calif., that provides numerous support functions and coordinates among the three Deep Space Network complexes around the world. The Deep Space Network is a lifeline to more than 30 spacecraft in deep space that are sending down unique science data about places like the surface of Mars and the far reaches of our solar system. The Deep Space Network is now sending commands and receiving data from a fleet of robotic spacecraft that includes NASA's Curiosity rover on Mars, the Spitzer Space Telescope, the Saturn explorer Cassini and the two Voyager spacecraft, which are more than 9 billion miles (14 billion kilometers) away from Earth. The 230-foot (70-meter) antenna at Goldstone has also used its radar to generate radar images of asteroids, including 1998 QE2, which made a distant flyby of Earth in May 2013.
