Parkes Open Days
The Parkes Observatory held Open Days to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moonwalk over the weekend of 20-21 July 2019. Film from the moonwalk was replayed at exactly the same time that the real event happened 50 years earlier. This was preceded by speeches from a number of distinguished guests, including Deputy Prime Minister, Michael McCormack, US Ambassador Arthur Culvahouse Jr., Minister for Industry, Science and Technology, Karen Andrews, and CSIRO Chief Executive, Larry Marshall, pictured (at lower right) above.
