The Deep Space Network is well known for its role in commanding and communicating with planetary spacecraft that are producing a steady stream of new discoveries. The antennas within the Deep Space Network also can be used as science instruments in their own right to complement and extend the observations conducted with spacecraft. Using radio science techniques that link a spacecraft and ground antenna, the atmospheres and interiors of solar system objects ranging from asteroids to planets can be probed. Using radar transmissions, surface and sub-surface characteristics of asteroids, moons, and planets can be probed and orbits determined to high precision. This session invites papers that highlight recent discoveries or that illustrate the future
potential for discoveries on the interiors, surfaces, and characteristics of solar system bodies obtained by using the Deep Space Network.
Deadline for abstract submission: 6 August 23:59 EDT/03:59 +1 GMT
