Австралия - Woomera Missile Park

# 10729

Категория ролика: Австралия

Woomera was set up after WWII as the British rocket and missile testing ground. Being remote desert, the spent missiles and rockets could fall harmlessly into the desert. At one point rivalling Cape Canaveral and White Sands in size of operation and number of launches, funding slowed up in the mid 1960s and by the late 1980s it was hardly used any more. Satellites were placed into orbit from here.
The place has a 1960s feel about it still.
