The Goldstone Deep Space Communications Complex (GDSCC) —commonly called the Goldstone Observatory— is located in California's Mojave Desert (USA). Operated by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, its main purpose is to track and communicate with space missions. The observatory is part of NASA's Deep Space Network.
Goldstone radio telescopes are also used in the search for ultra-high energy neutrino interactions in the Moon by using large-aperture radio antennas.
