About: Apollo AGC Part 10: Mike flies Apollo 11’s P63, lunar landing, on his AGC hardware replica
Where can I find some clear reconstructions of LM and CM control panel like the one at 13:10
Guys, you're just impressive, talented and lucky to be there :-)
Thought mike said heart burn.... Same as pucker factor?
Some of the best Space LARPing I've ever seen.
Ben Krasnow of Applied Science built a DSKY in proper. And Fran Blanche is also (i hope she continues) on the trail. You should really get in touch with those two, both are walking treasure vaults of information.
This is the absolute pinnacle of geekdom!
This is wonderful guys. I was 13 when I watched the Apollo series flights. In fact, I sat on my mother's lap when I was 4, watching John Glen's flight and I still remember it.
"Transients" not "transcients" :)
Great work, a pity though that space is fake and nobody went to the Moon and the Moon isn't even a thing people can walk on. Good you guys are having fun though.
DSKY program on a computer? I can do that. I want to see the real DSKY. There are a lot of made up programs you can do and play with. Keep working.
I haven't a clue what yous are on about but for some reason I love it.
This project is amazing. I was 18 at the time and about to start working for the BBC as a trainee engineer. I stayed up to watch the coverage of the landing, so I listened to this in real time! It is an extraordinare dry job you guys are doing to resurrect this ancient hardware, and show us how you are doing it. Well done.
Terrific stuff !! Thank you.
It seems an AGC and DSKY were also deployed in a F-8C fighter (#802) used by NASA for developing Fly-by-wire in airplanes.
Do you know something about the software loaded into that AGC ?
I suppose it's different from any of the versions used in the Apollo missions...
I keep wondering about the tools Mike used for this on his Linux machine, for IO and GUI? I was thinking about tinkering with something similar on a Raspberry Pi. I assume he has some USB gadget that enables him to read and set 5V signal pins, and then he communicates that to a GTK+ GUI window?
This is incredible stuff, not only for the feat of engineering you guys pulled to reverse engineer the AGC, but also to see the computer working as it did, in real time. The speed of the computer is apparent in the simulation!
"try SCE to auxiliary"
I love all your videos Marc, but this one was transcendental. Simulation made me feel like we were all in the LM. Thanks Mike, Marc and all the guys for keeping all this tech alive for us kids :)
Watching this live inspired me for a life in electronics!
