I would like to point out several things: 1. Luke Talley is awesome. 2. Every single frame of this video requires more memory storage than this memory module is capable of handling. Think about that. 3. This is not the Apollo computer. This is the Saturn V computer. They're different. This steered the rocket. 4. People that support Smarter Every Day on Patreon are make all this happen. If you're watching this second channel video I realize that you're more likely to consider becoming a patron... therefore I will now provide a link in hopes that you consider it. ( )

I grew up near Huntsville in Cullman, AL..Luke Talley sounds just like my grandad who passed away a few years ago, accent and especially with the "oh dang those plus c's!!" part! Before he died I started hitting the record on my phone when he told his stories from being a Commando on Iwo Jima and I only wish we'd both started sooner...him telling them and my secretly recording. Now I have that spirit in Luke Talley who was just a bit younger and hence able to give me another piece. There is something special about those old Alabama men both of NASA and even in the woods....always amazed me the true genius dispersed in the wilds of Alabama in the most unlikely of places.

To get all the way to the moon many of the the calculations were made by NASA's "Human Computer" Katherine Johnson, an African-American Lady who also calculated the trajectory of Alan Shepard's Murcury mission, the first American in space. Computers at that time were merely "clocks" that timed events.

Being 39 I think that the progress in computers is just bizarre. Imagine being one of the scientist that actually had to modify and use the computers in the Saturn V. They must see what they have done and what it has become as just pure astonishing light speed progress.

I have new respect for the whole space vehicle. I have always wondered why space flight costs so much. I remember news reports that NASA needed so much money for continued exploration. These people have worked tirelessly with often very crude instruments to make some incredible things happen. Great video. Learned a lot about how much technical knowledge went into the construction of the Saturn and Apollo mission spacecrafts. I am humbled.
Linus: thinks he is smart. NASA’S Mr.Talley: Hold my slide rule princess.

Greetings from Australia! This is an absolutely fascinating video. I am an Apollo geek from way back and with videos like this can learn even more about the Apollo program, which is undoubtedly the greatest engineering endeavour in history. The ingenuity of the engineers at that time is truly extraordinary. Luke Talley has encyclopedic knowledge of the technical details of the equipment, and it was wonderful to tap his expertise. Thank you very much.

I've just come back and watched this a second time and it's still awe inspiring stuff. I agree with what you said, I have a pretty good memory but, Luke seems to have much of that ingrained in his head. Even though he was a member of a team that researched the data, he still is or needed to be aware of what everything else was, so he had an idea what data he was looking at. absolutely great stuff.

Wow, what an interesting computer science history course by one pretty passionate fellow that makes me want to go to this museum just for a chance to hear him for hours!! Really gets you to realize how important the work done on those mission was for the future of computing. A very important work that was to build those memory modules, threading those nodes with high care, knowing that lives depends on it!! Those people are owed a well deserved recognition! So does Mr. Talley and his team for their huge work of manually analyzing pages of data frames! Thanks for this great 30 min. of history and humility/humanity of computer science !

Loved this.. I was a technical instructor (Air Traffic Control radar) for the Air Force and then the Navy back in the mid/late 70’s to early 80’s. Warm nastolgia swept me when you got to the fertite core memory stuff. We had a system for altitude and identification called the TPX-42. The main processor was a hard wired computer that ran a fixed process using a similar memory. We taught it’s function down to the four wires than ran through the cores. Read, write, sense and inhibit wires. Same story - hand made - by really tiny women. 😊 That system only had 1024 addressable locations, 8 bits deep. I worked with some really good instructors back then.
