Our Guest Speaker, is author Andrew Tink who will be talking to us tonight about his book Honeysuckle Creek. A story of Tom Reid, a little dish and Neil Armstrong’s first step.
Most of us have seen the movie The Dish, but few know the reality behind the televised images of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon. Honeysuckle Creek reveals the pivotal role that the tracking station at Honeysuckle Creek, near Canberra, played in the first moon landing. Andrew Tink gives a gripping account of the role of its direction Tom Reid and his colleagues in transmitting some of the worlds most watched images in human history as Neil Armstrong took his first step.
Part biography and part personal history, Andrew Tink’s book makes a serious contribution to Australia’s role in space exploration and reveals a story unknown until now.
