The Dish

The Dish, starring Sam Neill, featured the radio telescope at Parkes, NSW.
The telescope played a major role in the Apollo 11 mission to place a man on the moon.
Cliff (Sam Neill) and Glenn (Tom Long) were out on the dish after locking on to the signal once again after loosing all the data following a power supply failure.
Cliff: Imagine stuffing it up.
Glenn: How come you’ve changed?
Cliff: My wife told me, “Failure is not quite so frightening as regret.”
Glenn: That’s good advice. I wish someone had told me that.
