Welcome to CarnarvonSpace
This site celebrates Western Australia's role in Space research and, in particular, Carnarvon's critical role supporting NASA's Gemini, Apollo and Skylab projects. The companion book, "Carnarvon and Apollo: One giant leap for a small Australian town ", published by Rosenberg Publishing, is still available by order through this site (see below) or from Carnarvon's Space & Technology Museum or its Tourist Information Centre.
Margaret Medcalf Award 2011 - Special Commendation
“This work links Western Australian social history to the international history of science and technology in a highly readable way. Its lively exploration of Carnarvon's critical role in support of NASA space missions reminds us that history in living memory is no less surprising than the events of long ago. The use of maps, cartoons, photographs and personal reminiscences enhance the appeal of an intriguing story."
