Vital to every planetary exploration mission, the Deep Space Network provides the only means of communicating between the distant spacecraft and Earth. Commanding the spacecraft and returning science and engineering data is especially crucial during critical mission events such as orbit insertions and landings. From November 2003 until February 2004 the DSN must meet the challenge of supporting more concurrent events of this magnitude than ever in its history.
