The AGC - An unsung hero

The AGC: Apollo Guidance Computer is the unsung hero in the race to the moon, a visionary piece of hardware that had to work, always, was something totally new, a compact digital computer designed to enable man to navigate in space with no margin for error. 

The reason for the AGC.

Why it worked ... always.

Read the entire New Atlas piece as its exquisitely detailed and utterly fascinating to the max. Without question, you will learn how really creative people invented new tech on the fly that went to where no man has ever gone before.
