1-1000, 2-1000!

More good news today – udupendra has hit 1000 points! Excellent stuff saar – congratulations!

udupendra was one of the earliest people on this site, and has been a regular face for years now. This is also definitely not his first record here :) He was consistently topping the charts at BB before receiving some very stiff competition! Here’s hoping for many, many more answers from you!

Udupendra gets a star of honor – an achievement badge plus a special badge  as well.

Today’s question’s dedicated to udupendra of course :) (although there’s no ‘1000’ funda in this question like there was in yesterday’s)

Very simple – identify the ‘system’ being depicted here.

Answer:
The three locations of NASA/JPL’s Deep Space Network. You will notice they are roughly 120 degrees apart, giving the ‘best’ coverage to track deep space spacecraft.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.

    I never knew how one of the definitions was based on the Apollo missions.

  12. Deep space network antenna system

    Every U.S. deep space mission is designed to allow continuous radio communication with the spacecraft. The locations in Spain, Australia, and California are approximately 120 degrees apart in longitude, which enables continuous observation and suitable overlap for transferring the spacecraft radio link from one complex to the next.

    The Deep Space Network, or DSN, is an international network of large antennas and communication facilities that supports interplanetary spacecraft missions, and radio and radar astronomy observations for the exploration of the solar system and the universe.
