Famous Parkes telescope to again track lunar landings

Australia’s Parkes radio telescope, the famous dish that played a critical role in receiving pictures from the Apollo 11 moon mission, is back in the lunar landing business.

Australian national science agency CSIRO has signed a new five-year deal with Houston-based aerospace company Intuitive Machines as a ground station supporting multiple lunar missions.

The 64m Parkes telescope, the subject of the popular feature film “The Dish”, will play a role in NASA’s Commercial Lunar Landing Payload Services (CLPS) initiative harnessing commercial companies to deliver science and technology to the moon.
