The construction of Parkes
Yesterday's ADAP showed the construction of the Parkes telescope around mid-1961, and today's shows a milestone in the contruction with the focus cabin being lowered into position. The full story behind the Parkes telescope is detailed in Peter Robertson's Beyond Southern Skies. The telescope was officially opened on the 31st of October, 1961.
