Description

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 director Tom Reid and his colleagues in transmitting some of the most-watched images in human history as Neil Armstrong took his first step.

Part biography and part personal history, this book makes a significant contribution to Australia's role in space exploration and reveals a story little known until now.

As Christopher Columbus Kraft Jr, the director of flight operations for Apollo 11, acknowledged: `The name Honeysuckle Creek and the excellence which is implied by that name will always be remembered and recorded in the annals of manned space flight'.
