Internet on the Outstation is the result of a multi-year research collaboration, which included a trial of internet infrastructure, training and maintenance in three small Aboriginal communities (known as outstations).< Less

More > occupied the same territory longer than any other human population, about 50,000 years.

More > beings of three to four metres height, but giants of incredible and unbelievable dimensions, beings that the authors are describing of what can only be identified as beings of gargantuan height.

The word ‘Impossible’ is found only in the dictionary of fools!< Less
