CARLOS GONZALEZ

 

Welcome to my web.

 

My name is Carlos Gonzalez and during 43 years I have worked for NASA. First at the Manned Space Flight Network (MSFN) Tracking Station in Fresnedillas, Madrid. And second, at the Madrid Deep Space Communications Complex (MDSCC) in Robledo, Madrid.

 

I am already retired and thus I have taken my time to work on this WEB Page and hung on it a few essays that I have been writting during the last couple of years. When I retired I was Operations Manager and Deputy Director  at MDSCC.

 

I keep quite busy giving talks, having interviews, etc. all relative to my former job. Specially now that is NASA´s 55th aniversary.

 

Come on in, I invite you to go through the WEB, you will get to know me better. If you want me to know you have been here you can leave a note in my Guest book. You can also leave comments or suggestions to make this better.

 

As I said above, I have writen a few essays: Project Apollo, the Space Race, Apollo-Soyuz, Skylab,  the history of the Madrid Tracking Station, etc.

I have also written my thoughts about the possibility of a manned trip to Mars.

They´re all in My essayDon´t miss it!

Poner un hombre en la Luna no fue un proyecto simple. No solo hicieron falta los proyectos Mercury, Gemini y Apollo; había que determinar como era la superficie lunar y el sitio idóneo para el aterrizaje.

He subido otro escrito de los segundos pasos para lograr el resultado final tras el Proyecto Ranger y en conjunción con el Proyecto Surveyor. El Proyecto Lunar Orbiter.

Espero que os guste.

 

Como siempre, vuestras críticas servirán para mejorarlos.

Going to the Moon was not just the Mercury, Gemini and Apollo. It took a few more programs to determine the best landing place and what the surface was like.

I´ve written about the initial steps to get to the final result. After Project Ranger, and in conjunction with Project Surveyor, Project Lunar Orbiter was crucial in such determination.

I hope you llike it.
