Celebrating the first moon landing
The 50th anniversary of the first moon landing falls on 21 July 2019 AEST. It is an opportunity to reflect on the historic period of the lunar landings, and their motivations, influences and repercussions. It is also an opportunity to celebrate the ACT’s unique space heritage. The very first television images of Neil Armstrong’s first steps on the moon were beamed to the world via the former Honeysuckle Creek Tacking Station near Canberra. Other ACT facilities also played significant roles.
