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 essay. Don´t miss it!

En el 40 aniversario de las naves Voyager había que escribir algo sobre ellas, así que me he puesto el mono de trabajo y he hecho una pequeña reseña que he subido a esta WEB.
Nada de información técnica que de eso hay cientos de publicaciones, un pequeño repaso de su inicio y de su devenir en estos 40 años.
Espero que os guste.
Como siempre, vuestras críticas servirán para mejorar.

Something had to be written on the 40th anniversary of the Voyagers so, I put on my working clothes and did a very small write-up that I have downloaded to this WEB.
No technical information, there are hundreds of books on the subject.
Just little memories of their beginning and their whereabouts during these 40 years.
Hope you like it.
Also, your comments will help me to create a better product. Thanks.
