Author Talk: Andrew Tink
Part biography and part personal history, this book makes a significant contribution to Australia’s involvement in space exploration and reveals a story little known until now.
In Honeysuckle Creek, Andrew Tink reveals the pivotal role that the tracking station at Honeysuckle Creek, near Canberra, played in the first moon landing. Tink gives a gripping account of the role of its director Tom Reid and his colleagues in transmitting some of the most-watched images in human history as Neil Armstrong took his first step.
