Tracking Apollo: 50 Years since the Moon landing

Friday 19 July 2019, 06:00pm - 07:30pm

In July 1969, Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station played a vital role in the Apollo 11 Moon landing when it transmitted the first images of Neil Armstrong walking on the Moon to a global audience.

Hosted by Andrew Tink, author of Honeysuckle Creek: The Story, the panel will discuss how the tracking station on the outskirts of Canberra came to be involved in the mission; the challenges and technical complications the team faced; and the role Australia played in this defining moment in history.

The panel includes trackers who were at Honeysuckle Creek fifty years ago.






Location  National Museum of Australia, Lawsom Crescent, Acton.
