Additionally the 34m antenna DSS-61 is used for the PARTNeR Educational Project. Their current observation mode is single dish but they could collaborate with Apple Valley (GAVRT project) and perform interferometric observations. Currently the project is performing continuum emission studies of different radio sources, as Jupiter. One of their main projects is the study of variable X-ray binaries in collaboration with the Barcelona University. X-ray binaries are associations of two stars with mass transfer from one to the other. Apart from being very bright in X-rays, their radio emission is variable.
