Visitors at Tidbinbilla
Last week, the Canberra Deep Space Communication Complex (CDSCC) hosted a visit from NASA Administrator Bill Nelson and NASA Deputy Administrator Pamela Melroy. The photo above was taken in front of the 34m DSS-36 antenna, and shows from left to right: Elanor Huntington (CSIRO Director, Digitial, National Facilities and Collections), Kevin Ferguson (Director, CDSCC), Bill Nelson, Pamela Melroy, Larry Marshall (CSIRO Chief Executive), and Enrico Palermo (Head of the Australian Space Agency). While in Australia Bill Nelson and Pam Melroy also addressed the National Press Club of Australia. In 1986, Bill Nelson became the second sitting member of US Congress to fly in space, when he served as a payload specialist on board the Space Shuttle Columbia. (Image credit: @CanberraDSN)
