This astonishing 6-part documentary series from 2008 is being re-run on the Science Channel, and it's just mind-blowing!
All the nitty-gritty technical detail they'd never put in a mainstream space docu!

From Part 3: The Navigation Computer



I'd never heard of anything like Rope Memory: You don't wanna get distracted putting that stuff together! Not a lot of chit-chat amongst the assembly line, I'd wager.

Amazing what passed for computers back in ancient times.
