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 60th 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!
El libro "El gran salto al abismo" escrito por Jesús Saez y publicado por Next Door Publishers, esta teniendo una considerable aceptación.
Narra mi vida en conjunción con la carrera y exploración espaciales de una manera amena y familiar.
