8:45am Monday 21 July 1969
Video: Tour inside the Operations Building
Australian Prime Minister John Gorton is taken on a tour of the Honeysuckle Creek Operations Building by Station Director Tom Reid.
It is between 8:30 and 9:00am Eastern Australian Standard Time. The Eagle landed just over 2 hours before the tour began and the Moon would rise just over two hours after the Prime Minister left the Station. It is around 4 hours before the First Step and there is plenty of activity as the next Station Readiness Test looms.
