Parkes, the home of the dish!
I’ve always had a huge interest in Radio Astronomy so after seeing the movie “The Dish” I decided an aussie road trip would be in order. This small town in the middle of nowhere was home to a huge part of Australian history. Most notably ‘The Dish’ was used as a relay station for pictures beamed back from the first moon landing.
The story was recently made into a movie that’s well worth the watch.
