- The Extended Story -

John Paul Wild AC OBE (17 May 1923 – 10 May 2008) was a British-born Australian radio astronomer and national science leader who served as chairman of the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) 1978-1985. Paul Wild was born in Sheffield, England in 1923. His scientific specialization was radio astronomy, including radio observations of the Sun. The Paul Wild Observatory at Narrabri, New South Wales is named after him. In 1972 he invented the Interscan microwave landing system. He won numerous awards, including the ANZAAS Medal in 1984. Also in 1984, a year before his retirement from CSIRO, he instigated and subsequently led the Very Fast Train project, intended to run TGV-like trains between Sydney and Melbourne via Canberra. The project collapsed in 1991, principally through half-hearted cooperation by some of the four governments involved. He died in 2008 in Canberra.
