Interactive video lesson plan for: The Deep Space Network NASA Social

Activity overview:

To help celebrate the 50th anniversary of NASA's Deep Space Network (DSN), the world's largest and most powerful communications system for "talking" to spacecraft, we invited 45 social media followers to spend a day at JPL and a second day at the DSN Goldstone antenna complex.
