is there anybody there?
Visited the Canberra Deep Space Communication Centre part of NASA's Deep Space Network...huge dishes listening for extra terrestrial activity. All very weird, enormous white dishes up in the mountains in the middle of nowhere. Excellent coffee shop for visitors though.
** Just realised a better caption for the above pic would be ' our newly fitted tv reception equipment' **
The dishes messed up our satnav, so we spent a lot of time getting lost with the emus until we found the first dish.
On our way to Wagga Wagga to visit one of Vanessa's elderly aunts, but if tonight's phone call is anything to go by she appears as deaf as a post and has no idea we are arriving.
