I too saw it last night – it has been released in Sydney at least jamesh. It was interesting… I’ve never seen that much of the coverage of the Apollo 11 moon landing (it was twelve years before I was born…)
It made me a bit homesick too – I spent most of my life living in Orange, which isn’t too far from Parkes. And yes, the radio telescope really is in the middle of a sheep paddock – well a paddock anyway. And it’s sheep country, so there would have to be sheep somewhere in the vicinity.
