Goonhilly Satellite Earth Station is located on the Lizard Peninsula in Cornwall, UK. It’s famous for many reasons, but perhaps most notably, for receiving the first ever trans-Atlantic satellite TV images, broadcast by Telstar, on 11 July 1962.
Goonhilly Earth Station is set for a transformation to a new Space Science centre by a new company Goonhilly Earth Station (GES) Ltd.
Goonhilly is already open for commercial business, and is fully operational as a satellite communications teleport. Goonhilly Earth Station carries business internet data, and also is used as a command and control centre gateway for controlling various satellites.
