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.
