For fifty years the televised moon walk of the Apollo 11 lunar mission has been remembered as an historic moment. Regarded as one of humanity's most significant achievements, the goal of Apollo 11 was to land a man on the Moon and return him safely to the Earth.

The Lunar Module Eagle landed on the Moon, in the Sea of Tranquility, on 21 July 1969 AEST (20 July EST). A few hours later, Commander Neil Armstrong, followed by Lunar Module Pilot Edwin 'Buzz' Aldrin, became the first humans to walk on the Moon's surface.

Television of the moon walk was transmitted to 600 million viewers, and two radio antennas in Australia were an integral part of this historic event. Based in Honeysuckle Creek ACT and Parkes NSW, these 'dishes' and their Australian operators were in position to receive and transmit the television images of the moon walk.
