Apollo 11

For the anniversary of Apollo 11, I am remembering the contribution of Parkes observatory in Australia, where I once briefly worked in this same control room (sufficiently long ago that it didn't look that different to this).

How cool that you worked at Parkes. "The Dish" played a critical role in relaying Apollo 11 signals.
