Thread: Apollo Guidence Computer Restoration

    Default Apollo Guidence Computer Restoration

    I happened to run across this video tonight. Very interesting.



    In 1976 in a warehouse in Texas, Jimmie Loocke bought two tons of scrapped NASA equipment. Years later he realized it included a computer from an Apollo lunar module, like the one used to guide the lander to the surface of the moon during Apollo 11. Fifty years after that mission, computer restoration experts in Silicon Valley are trying to get his computer working again.

    You are almost a year behind.
    Curiousmarc has an entire series on Youtube where they first get the system, start verifying everything, start testing and slowly bring it back up to completely running. End to end it's several hours long.
