Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station

Today, when we remember the Apollo moon program, we think of the astronauts and spacecraft. However, none of it would have been possible without tracking and communications with Earth. The video of Neil Armstrong’s first step came to the world via the Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station. This site is an ongoing work by Colin Mackellar as a tribute to the pioneering work of all who were involved with NASA’s Honeysuckle Creek Tracking Station. With a large number of videos (some of them found nowhere else), interviews with station staff from the period, government documents and newspaper clippings, this site is an extraordinary record of an exciting piece of space history. Well worth a visit. (ME)
