Parkes Radio Telescope

If you've ever seen the movie The Dish, this is That Dish.


It is a 64m radio telecope commissioned in March 1961.





The Visitor's Centre. This contains displays, real-time feeds from the control room, and the actual 1969 control panel as used during the Apollo landings, which was rebuilt and used in the movie.


The view from Table 7, The Dich Cafe. Fresh coffee, home made meat pies, and a 64m dish looking at binary pulsars.
