Deep Space Network This map shows the global array of NASA’s Deep Space Network (DSN). The only international network of antennas that provide the communication links between the scientists and engineers on Earth and the spacecraft and rovers on Mars, the DSN is comprised of three deep-space communications facilities placed approximately 120 degrees apart around the world: at Goldstone, in California's Mojave Desert; near Madrid, Spain; and near Canberra, Australia. This strategic placement allows for constant observation of spacecraft as the Earth rotates on its own axis. NASA
