Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex

Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex Review

Friendly and enthusiastic staffers conduct guided tours of this 53-square-mile complex. Tours start at the Goldstone Museum, where exhibits detail past and present space missions and Deep Space Network history. From there, you'll drive out to see the massive concave antennas, starting with those used for early manned space flights and culminating with the 24-story-tall "listening" device and its always-staffed mission control room used to track spacecraft that have drifted beyond our solar system. Appointments are required; contact the complex to reserve a slot.
