Space Probe Overload
ABCnews reports that space scientists the world over are a little worried that the 50-year-old Deep Space Network, may be overloaded by all the traffic from over 25 space probes currently in-flight to various locations. Peak traffic is expected to happen in 2003-2004. 6-14 Update from Aureth: Additional information from Shockwave, who works for a NASA contractor, is in the comments. Very interesting...to me at least, since I'm a minor space buff.
