The first voyages to the moon stretched technology to the limits of the possible. In particular, the computer on-board the Apollo spacecraft was revolutionary and incorporated capabilities that are advanced even by today’s standards. NASA historian and author Frank O’Brien will present an overview of the computer and what made it able to navigate a spacecraft and its precious human cargo on a voyage from the Earth to the moon. With that background, he will review the critical lessons learned from Apollo, and how they apply to today’s data centers and computing infrastructure.
