Tales from the Lunar Guidance Computer

In Tales from the Lunar Guidance Computer, Don Eyles, a software engineer during the Apollo lunar missions and developer of several programs for the computer of the Lunar Module, does a very detailed description of that computer and its i/os, the real time system used and also the efforts made to solve some bugs and replicate errors. Truly interesting if you love computers and astronautics.

“I’ve written computer programs while I was stoned which have turned out to be pretty good programs.”, Don Eyles at Extra! Weird-Looking Freak Saves Apollo 14!
