Apollo AGC Part 7: Memory Module B12

Get your project PCBs from our sponsor PCBway! https://www.pcbway.com/ Put Samtec connectors in your projects! www.samtec.com Our core memory module has a fault. We deep dive into its construction and make several measurements to find where the problem is. It will be helpful to first watch my core memory video: https://youtu.be/AwsInQLmjXc . This blog article from Ken Shirriff goes into even more details about the AGC core memory: http://www.righto.com/2019/01/inside-apollo-guidance-computers-core.html Frequent comment answers: Yes we know about Francois Rautenbach and the Block I core ropes (https://youtu.be/WquhaobDqLU). These ropes are also from Jimmie but are not compatible with our Block II computer. Yes we are in contact with Fran https://youtu.be/UjcfepTdvZI (and several others) about their superb DSKYs replicas.

Apollo AGC Part 1: Restoring the computer that put man on the Moon

Apollo AGC Part 1: Restoring the computer that put man on the Moon

We embark on the restoration of a very rare and historically significant machine: the Apollo Guidance Computer, or AGC. It was the revolutionary MIT-designed computer aboard Apollo that brought man on the Moon (and back!). Mike Stewart, space engineer extraordinaire and living AGC encyclopedia, spearheads this restoration effort. In this first episode, we setup a makeshift lab in his hotel room, somewhere in Houston. The computer belongs to a delightful private collector, Jimmie Loocke, who has generously allowed us to dive in the guts of his precious machine, with the hope of restoring it to full functionality by July 2019, the anniversary of the Apollo 11 Moon Landing.

Apollo AGC Part 5: We run a chunk of original Apollo code!

We are out of time for our first visit, and memory is not working. But our whiz kid Mike manages to whip up an FPGA memory emulator for the AGC just before we have to leave. The AGC gets to run a chunk of an original Apollo program! Frequent comment answers: Yes we know about Francois Rautenbach and the Block I core ropes (https://youtu.be/WquhaobDqLU).

34C3 -  The Ultimate Apollo Guidance Computer Talk

https://media.ccc.de/v/34c3-9064-the_ultimate_apollo_guidance_computer_talk The Apollo Guidance Computer ("AGC") was used onboard the Apollo spacecraft to support the Apollo moon landings between 1969 and 1972. This talk explains "everything about the AGC", including its quirky but clever hardware design, its revolutionary OS, and how its software allowed humans to reach and explore the moon.
