Jim Lewis, Managing Director of Deep Space Communications Network (DSCN), was the guest for this special morning Space Show program. Mr. Lewis explained the concept behind DSCN and how any of us can use the product to send a message to deep space. This is an exciting space business right here on the ground that any of us can access and the fee is reasonable. Mr. Lewis, in response to many listener questions as well as my own, discussed the technical aspects of how they send a message to deep space, where the message goes, how long it takes to get to the destination, satellite communications, acquiring time on a commercial communications satellite, and much more. Listeners should visit the DSCN website for additional information and the forms necessary to send their personal message to deep space.
