One Small Step - The Australian Story

PARKES, AUSTRALIA - JUNE 12: (AUSTRALIA & NEW ZEALAND MAGAZINES OUT UNTIL OCT 1, 2009) The Australian Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation's (CSIRO) Australia Telescope National Facility (ATNF) Parkes Observatory radio telescope is seen on June 12, 2009 in Parkes, Australia. Known affectionately as The Dish, it is one of the largest radio telescopes in the Southern Hemisphere and was used by NASA during the Apollo 11 mission which saw man walk on the moon for the first time. The Dish became a house hold name when an Australian film of the same name directed by Rob Sitch was released in 2000 - it went on to become the highest grossing film of that year in Australia. These photographs were taken during filming for the BBC Knowledge production 'One Small Step: The Australian Story', which chronicles the 24hours surrounding man walking on the moon. Hosted by Peter FitzSimons, the programme counts down to the moon landing and the most famous human footsteps, to celebrate the mission's 40th anniversary this year.
