NASA Golf Ball

I was on a tour of the JSOC building and NASA golf ball the other day.  Inside the golf ball is a satelite tracking and communications dish, 10 meters wide.  Pretty cool science stuff! 

Arriving at the top of the hill, building 71 is in the foreground.

Exterior of the golf ball protects the dish.
