As a child and with my family we went often on holidays to theLizard Peninsula, driving past the GoonHilly Downs Earth Station. In the1960's it communicated with Telstar and was for me the epitome of hi-tech-sci-fi. Another world. A world I wanted to explore. Tomorrow's World. I knew it was important.
