NASA’s “The Invisible Network” podcast returns on June 9 for a six-episode season about NASA’s Deep Space Network. Managed by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Southern California, the Deep Space Network provides critical communications links to flagship NASA missions at Mars, the outer planets, and even in interstellar space.
Podcast episodes will debut on Thursdays throughout June and July. Check out our season trailer here:
“The Invisible Network” first debuted in 2018 with a six-episode season covering a variety of topics related to NASA’s Space Communications and Navigation (SCaN) program office. Since then, the podcast’s 22 episodes have covered burgeoning commercialization efforts, laser communications technologies, NASA’s Artemis Moon missions, and so much more.
The technologies that allow NASA to talk to and navigate spacecraft are often overlooked – perhaps because they work so well. Join us as we shine a light on the invisible networks that power space science and exploration.
From long-form interviews with astronauts and engineers to stories that take you on a tour of the galaxy, NASA’s audio offerings let you experience the thrill of space exploration without ever leaving Earth. Discover all of NASA’s podcasts at: nasa.gov/podcasts.
