Super Satellite Station

History of the Mill Village satellite station.





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

I learned that it was a magnet for lightning storms and could take awhile to fix the control boards after the lightning struck.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

If the Mill Village satellite station would not have been built in 1964, many Canadians would not have been able to watch big events like the famous hockey game between Russia and Canada in 1972.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Communications have evolved and is very different today.
