Nearly every image of another planet that was taken by a NASA spacecraft has been transmitted to us through one or more antennas of NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN). For almost the past 60 years, the DSN has been guiding spacecraft to their destinations across the Solar System, sending them commands for actions to take upon reaching their destinations, and receiving the data back from them. Moreover, the DSN is a science instrument in its own right. In this Webinar, I will review what the DSN is, how it enables NASA missions throughout the Solar System and beyond, and illustrate some of the scientific measurements that it makes on its own.
