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 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 essayDon´t miss it!

Actualidad

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.

Se inicia el quincuagésimo aniversario del Apollo XIII y no puedo dejar pasar la ocasión sin hacer un pequeño escrito para conmemorarlo.

 

Bien pues, me ha costado pero he conseguido terminarlo. Está dirigido principalmente a ver que causó el accidente. No incluyo nada del viaje, eso lo tengo recogido en mi ensayo sobre el Programa Apollo.

Espero que os guste.

 

Como siempre, vuestras críticas servirán para mejorar.

What´s new

The book "El gran salto al abismo" writen by Jesus Saez and published by Next Door Publishers, is having a more than acceptable response.

 

It narrates my life in conjunction with the space race and exploration.

I´ll post a note when available in English.

 

The MUNCYT exhibition  opened for the public on 20 December, but official inauguration date is still unknown.

The 50th anniversary of the Apollo XIII is coming up and I couldn´t but do a small write-up to commemorate it.

 

I have tried to analyze what caused the accident rather than talk about the trip itself as I have written about it in other of my essays.

 

Hope you like it.
