Yes indeed its a huge plus for Australia
and the Science community, as the CSIRO and their partners, both government and commercial have been one hell of a lot busier out in the deep wilds of the Murchison
than most people know.
The historic Boolardy Station
I had the absolute pleasure in seeing and learning about the deep space MRO project, first hand.
Antenna ~ MRO
The implications for mankind could be amazing, should the theory behind this deep space astronomy prove successful.
I am an absolute no body in connection to the MRO project but I can't help feel a little proud of their achievements so far and in all honesty, just being on the ground inside this history making project was a real buzz.
Thanks : Antony E.T. Schnickel ~ Barry Turner and all the eminent scientists who had faith in my driving abilities during our recent Murchison
Although the MRO project was of great interest to me, the past history of the Murchison
the Indigenous People and Pioneers gave me a real feeling for the region, its a shame I only got to feel the history of Wooleen
Station as it was dark when I arrived at 21:00 and still quite dark when I left at 04:45 for Boolardy about an hour away by road.
