Fire Across the Desert is an extensive account of the Joint Anglo Australian Project that led to establishment of the township Woomera and the missile testing range that helped shape our defence and contributed significantly to space exploration. Fire Across the Desert has been digitised to coincide with the 50th Anniversary of the launch of Australia’s first satellite, WRESAT, from the Woomera Rocket Range on 29 November 1967.
