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. A series of talks was given over the two days by CASS staff and invited speakers, covering topics including the Parkes role in Apollo 11, the Apollo discoveries, the role of Parkes in the Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence, and the making of the movie Apollo 11 by the archive director, Stephen Slater. Also mingling with the crowd over the weekend were the two moon-walking astronauts pictured above!
