Canberra Trackign Station map 1965

Dick Collins worked with the Department of Supply and was involved with the site selection for Honeysuckle Creek.

Here he is at commercial television station NBN-3 in Newcastle, NSW, speaking about Australian support for space exploration.

The photo on the right is of the Blue Streak launch area at Lake Hart, Woomera, and the photo at left is the newly-constructed Tidbinbilla.

With thanks to Dick Collins. Scan by his daughter, Jo Allen.
