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. ( )

@Chris Bennett I Respectfully hear and appreciate what you’re saying Chris, & glad you’re in a cool position despite the disappointment. This is amazing of course but I’m an old airplane (old tech in general) loyalist. I Love the reliability of a straight forward design. Less to go wrong!

You can tell people this one...HERE WE GO HONEY CAKES..LOL , TELL ME THEY USED """FILM""""?🤣🤣🤣🤣 1896 TECHNOLOGY!!! Flimsy emulsified GELATIN celluloid ??? That only works between 40° and 100° Fahrenheit... (And how HOT AND COLD IS THE MOON AGAIN?) Tried taking a picture with a camera with GELATIN film when it's freezing outside it won't work try taking it when it's too hot it won't work How did NASA provide refrigeration and a heating system to a camera on the moon? When you see the ORIGINAL camera it's a joke!!! celluloid roll film, which began in early 1896. a strip or sheet of transparent plastic film base coated on one side with a gelatin emulsion containing microscopically small light-sensitive silver halide crystals Eastman's first motion picture film stock was offered in 1889. KEEP DRINKING THE KOOL-AID, SISTER....

In elementary school, I was in a class called "Gifted and Talented". Every year, the high school kids would simulate space orbit simulation. They had built a miniatures scale orbiter, and the high school students did "missions by living in the orbiter during shifts. It was a couple of weeks every school year. They simulated the launch by having the whole school in the cafeteria, where the orbiter is in the stage. All the younger students would do this big countdown, and they would spray fire extinguishers for a number of seconds. The high school students even went through a miniature training. Stuff like training to land the orbiter using a computer orbiter simulator program. At the end of the whole thing. They would use the same computer program to land the orbiter at the end. They had a computer program that kept track of the orbiter as they used data to track the orbiter as if it were in space. One of our instructors was an actual NASA employee way back then. If I'm not mistaking, he read data from those big reel to reel data tape. We even had a other school that we would send who were doing the same thing at their school. Like a apace student exchange program. If was only for a number of weeks. They slept, ate, lived on the orbiter. It was really cool.

Hey Destin, this was fascinating to watch.. they managed to land humans on the moon, and bring them back with the technology which seems primitive now, but was cutting edge back then.. it's mind blowing! Your content is entertaining and enlightening.. enjoyed this episode of smarter everyday ;)

If the moon has been out there for billions or even millions of years with no atmosphere, how in the world (...eeem I mean moon) does it have a molten core?!!!???!

It’s a relatively cold core, but space has nothing to convert into. All energy had to be lost as radiation, which takes a long time

LOl so you brought the most idiot computer guy that you can find on youtube? There are so many other most knowledgeable people out there that you could have reached out. WOW I am so disappointed in this video. Having your kid on this video, would have been been a better option. Linus should have known all this stuff and you should have not had to teach him anything. Seriously what was the point of having him on the show. Linus is nothing more than a board swapper. Same things I call most of our wanna be engineers.

As a side note, if you drill down to the actual workings of the modern computer, the technology has changed but the core (pun intended) of these machines is exactly the same. The operating system is like the loop and the applications interrupt that loop to send it off to do something else. At the very basic level the computer only understands those ones and zeros from back in the day. No mater how many layers you stack on it it's still just on or off.

When I got out of the navy back in the 70s, I went to work for a company that contracted to the Airforce for maintenance on a KC135 simulator. The control system was comprised of a Zerox sigma 5 and sigma 7 digital computer coupled to 2 comcore analog computers. The digital computers had no IC technology and the core memory was made up of 4 doors (yes doors) of 8K by 32 bit core memory boards controlled by transistor arrays. A single memory door weighed 600 Lbs. When we had problems we would troubleshoot to component level with schematics and oscilloscopes while running maintenance programs (we knew what was supposed to be where) and repaired them at the component level, swapping out memory cores if needed. The back planes or card cages were wire wrapped and upgrades came from Zerox in the form of pages of adds and deletes to the backplane wiring. The whole system needed massive amounts of air-conditioning year round (WPAFB in Dayton Ohio). If the air ever needed maintenance or went down for some reason we did a controlled shut down of the whole system until after the air was back working and could maintain 55 degrees under the raised floor. This brings back those memories like it was yesterday. Todays computer programmers and technicians have no idea how good they have it.

He asks how does he remember all those details about this project, most likely because this whole system was his whole career, back then jobs where for life, these days maybe a few years at most for a project or job, so remembering all details of previous projects can be hard and you will forget. As today your using a lot more short term memory or like exams cramming studying to learn details of a project and to get it finished and once the exam and projects over the memory fades.
