Apollo 11 - Parkes Radio Telescope

The 64-metre diameter dish of the CSIRO radio telescope, one of three radio telescopes in remote Australia involved in the Apollo 11 mission, aims skyward north of Parkes on July 9, 2009. Forty years ago the Parkes radio telescope was used to beam the television images of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin walking on the lunar surface to the world.TORSTEN BLACKWOOD, AFP/Getty Images
