Sunday Nerding: The Computers Of NASA

Two of my favourite topics this week: computing, and space. This video from NASA describing their use of computing to plan, carry out and manage the space program of the 1960’s.

Although not dated, this video appears to have been prepared in the 1970’s, as it would seem the moon landings have already taken place, and it speaks of Skylab and the Space Shuttle program, both of which had their origins in the early 1970’s.
