In honor of our friend and devoted colleague Mr Peter Thomas, we have dedicated one of our facilities, the Dongara satellite station in Australia, as the "Peter Thomas Facility". Peter Thomas passed away in September 2016 after battling cancer. The dedication was well attended by family and colleagues.
Peter Thomas joined SSC in Australia in 2013. During his time at SSC he performed countless launch support activities and maintained and repaired over nine separate antennas daily.
One of his hobbies was photography. Pete took many beautiful photos of our antennas, which are being used on our website and printed material.
The site will continue to also be called the Dongara Satellite Station. Learn more about the station.
