"Apollo was a major software project. Astronauts used the Apollo Guidance Computer, placed in both the command module & the lunar module, for navigation assistance & to control the spacecraft, & someone needed to program it.

"Logic Module" Apollo Guidance Computer Wire wrapped Backplane core rope memory. The AGC was a digital computer produced for the Apollo program. The AGC provided computation and electronic interfaces for guidance, navigation, and control of the spacecraft. The AGC had a 16-bit word length, with 15 data bits and one parity bit. Most of the software on the AGC was stored in a special read only memory known as core rope memory, fashioned by weaving wires through magnetic cores, though a small…

Material developed and provided by John Pultorak who is kind enough to put these files into the public domain with no restrictions on their use.  Abstract  This report describes my successful project to build a working reproduction of the 1964 prototype for the Block I Apollo Guidance Computer. The AGC is the flight computer for the Apollo moon landings, with one unit in the command module and one in the LEM.  Block I Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC): How to build one in your basement
