Name of article[edit]

Is this the proper name for the page? It seems to me like as the Goldstone site is only a part of the Deep Space Network, that the name should remain Goldstone Observatory. However, I am not too familiar with the DSN, so maybe someone else can make the call. --zandperl 00:52, 12 Mar 2004 (UTC)

I don't know if you still have this page on your watchlist, but yes the name is correct. DSN is composed of three Deep Space Communications Complexes (Goldstone, Canberra, and Madrid), an operations center and voice communications at JPL, and the network connecting them. I believe that "Goldstone Observatory" is a subset of GDSCC because GDSCC consists of multiple antennas (radio telescopes/ground stations).RockinRobTalk 04:03, 19 May 2006 (UTC)
