From Australia to the World: The Lost Apollo Moments

World Science Festival Brisbane Regional Program 

By 1970, Australia housed a number of NASA-operated technological facilities that played a significant role in the early exploration of space – in fact, the largest number of these facilities, outside the USA, were in Australia. From Honeysuckle Creek in the ACT to Cooby Creek in Queensland, these deep space-tracking networks were instrumental in the success of several NASA missions including making sure that eager television viewers worldwide could watch Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the Moon.

Learn the untold story of Australia’s early contributions to the space race and hear firsthand from the unsung Aussies who worked tirelessly to transmit the first signals from the moon to the world.
