Another Dark Little Corner

Started this before change to "New Blogger", as backup in case of trouble with digiphoto blog "In a Small Dark Room", or rants & links blog "Hello Cruel World" . Useful - at one stage Dark Room was there, but like the astrophysical Dark Matter, we could't see it ... better now, but kept Just In Case.

There is nothing. There is no God and no universe, there is only empty space, and in it a lost and homeless and wandering and companionless and indestructible Thought. And I am that thought. And God, and the Universe, and Time, and Life, and Death, and Joy and Sorrow and Pain only a grotesque and brutal dream, evolved from the frantic imagination of that same Thought.

Sitting among a bunch of restless children on a hard wooden floor at the back of the midwinter-cold school hall, with the B & W 16" TV on the stage, after waiting through a long delay, it was very difficult to hear or see the transmission.  Luckily by then my parents had TV of their own (before would watch at my grandmother's) and we could all watch the replay together on that night's news.
Now I have seen the Full Moon exhibition, with photos up to life-size, and have the book Full Moon, by Michael Light, Andrew Chaikin (Alfred A. Knopf, 1999, ISBN: 0375406344) Light took NASA's master negatives of photos taken by Apollo astronauts and scanned them electronically, there's an essay by Chaikin.

Apollo Lunar Surface Journal: - a good resource to argue against the 'moon landings were faked' idea. Memories of the Parkes connection with the first human landing on the Earth's moon (as fictionalized in film The Dish) Memories of the Honeysuckle Creek- Tidbinbilla (aka Honeybilla)  - near Canberra - connection with the first human landing on the Earth's moon.  They did the first bit, before Parkes took over - the last-moment crisis in The Dish is true. Order your DVD! (The DVD contains the audio of the comms loop at Honeysuckle and Net 2 (the NASA tracking station network) synchronised with the video of the first 30 minutes of the Apollo 11 moon walk.) 

An archive of photos related to the whole Apollo project: A personal look back at man's first voyages to the Moon, from the perspective of a young teenager at the time.
