Astro club session - 29 June

We watched the "The Dish" movie. The movie was about a group of Australian people that team up with NASA to maintain a signal with Apollo 11 and use the Parkes radio telescope dish to relay the video contact with Apollo 11 with the rest of the world. Some problems faced are that the was a problem with the generators at the radio telescope and it caused them to lose the signal with Apollo 11. They managed to solve the problem by working together to try to calculate the approximate position of Apollo 11, and directing the radio telescope towards it.
