Space and Technology Museum at Carnarvon
Jim Crockett posted this on our ex-OTC Facebook Page:I just came back from trip on the Norwest coast of Western Australia on my way to the 31st bi-annual conference of the Australian Speleological Federation that was held at Exmouth. On the way we stopped for a visit to the Space and Technology Museum at Carnarvon at the old OTC Satellite station [and NASA Centre].
Very impressive and interesting display well worth the several hours we spent there.
Above: This appears to be a capsule of similar size to the Apollo Command module and is labelled “Apollo Experience”. Jim says that you can get in and get a feel for the small space that they had to live in.
Jim Crockett wrote this update: “Yes you can get inside and you Lay on your back and there is simulated Apollo rocket launch, takes about 3 minutes”.
Although I don’t have too much info, I believe that these are the very nearby NBN dishes servicing the region.
