Kerrie Dougherty — Australia & the Apollo 11 Moon Landing [50th Anniversary]

“Based on a true story”, The Dish focuses on the crucial role of the Parkes Radio Telescope in broadcasting the moon landing live to the world. But it is only a movie, and it leaves much untold.

Kerrie Dougherty reveals the full extent of Australia’s involvement in the Apollo 11 moon landing and the role our space tracking facilities played in the wider Apollo program.

How did Australia really bring the Apollo 11 landing to the world?  How did the Parkes telescope contribute to NASA’s Deep Space Network? And how can an Australian experiment placed on the Moon during Apollo help with future lunar exploration?

The Dish is only part of the story.
