With the test match between the West Indies
and Australia getting under way at the Sydney Cricket Ground today, we look
back at some epic photos of cricket on the surface of the 64-m Parkes
Telescope during a visit by the US Ambassador on the 31st of October 2003:
"With John Reynolds bowling and Neal Newman keeping wicket, the Ambassador
eyed the ball and hit it for six, sending it almost into orbit. Bradman would
be proud!". - For a description of the events plus many more photos see
