Update from NASA/JPL’s Susan Kurtik, responsible for support to external agencies at the Deep Space Network.

The DSN is honored to be a part of this amazing adventure! We have been busy validating our systems over the last several weeks and we will have additional engineers at all of our sites to ensure we are ready to provide backup support and capture the incredible images and science from ROSETTA. Attached is the timeline picture of our support.

We will be eating peanuts until landing!
