The story of Tom Reid, a Little Dish and Neil Armstrong’s First Step
Andrew Tink will be telling us about the pivotal role that the tracking station at Honeysuckle Creek played in the first moon landing.
His new book gives a gripping account of the role of its director Tom Reid and his colleagues in trasmitting some of the most-watched images in human history as Neil Armstrong took his first step.
Part biography and part personal history, the book makes a significant contribution to Australia’s role in space exploration and reveals a story little known until now.
