The Great Oz Eddventue #43 – NASA Deep Space Tracking Station

A few months ago Hazel and I visited the NASA Deep Space Tracking Station at Tidbinbilla.  I drive past this everyday to and from work and it always amazes me how huge the dishes are (biggest in the Southern hemisphere).  I also like the way it compares the advancement of technology with the beauty of nature as you view it on the landscape, which I wanted to show in my illustration.
This Tracking Station had the privilege of being able to record the very first Moon Landing, so inside the Tracking Station’s museum like visitor centre you will find information, photos and memorabilia from this, not to mention a piece of Moon rock that is on display!
