Image: Orion and NASA tracking station
Orion and NASA tracking station
Caption : Spacecraft-tracking radio antenna set against the Orion constellation. Photographed at Tidbinbilla near Canberra, Australia.
Facts: The constellation Orion takes it's name from the mythical Greek hunter Orion who claimed he could kill every wild animal on Earth. It is a large constellation and, being on the celestial equator, is visible from all parts of the planet. The antenna forms part of the NASA deep space network (DSN). This parabolic dish antenna is 70 meters in diameter. There are also two 34 meter diameter and one 26 meter antenna at the site. Together these antenna provide a radio link to track spacecraft that take part in deep space interplanetary missions, or satellites orbiting the earth. Other antenna sites exist in Spain and the USA providing NASA with 24 hour tracking ability.
