    I would like to point out several things:
    1. Luke Talley is awesome.
    2. Every single frame of this video requires more memory storage than this memory module is capable of handling. Think about that.
    3. On the second channel we talk about things like how they took into account gyroscopic precession with this bad boy. They also crashed this into the moon and used the signal as a way to figure out what the inside of the moon is like. It's a good video, you should consider watching it. ( )
    4. This is not the Apollo computer. This is the Saturn V computer. They're different. This steered the rocket.
    5. People that support Smarter Every Day on Patreon are really cool and I like them a lot. ( )

      Haha! Luke's trip face (13:14), I hope he offered enough for Destin to go on a micro dose regiment. Don't get me wrong, Destin is almost the happiest smartest most creative person I've met. I am not suggesting as any sort of 'treatment', However I can imagine the boost too his amazingly infectious energy micro-dosing could offer. I truly can see his energy reaching much further and even into public policy/politics. Alas he would never know what he was missing if he was too shy to ask for some, so no harm done either way

      @Sean Hicks Flat-Earthers like myself are laughing at you brainwashed globe believers getting destroyed in the comments by facts and logic. Let me add another irrefutable fact, long distance photography proves Earth to be a flat plane, because curvature of an alleged sphere is never witnessed anywhere obstructing the line of sight to distant objects miles and miles away, where at this distance these still visible objects should be entirely or at least partially hidden from view below the horizon line, yet there they always are to be seen as is only possible on a flat plane. Choke on the Truth

            yet we see no photos of these space craft in action, ever. i think this is all people are asking for. this sounds like just non stop bs.

                    Anything to do with the Saturn 5 is awesome in my book. For me though, being able to actually see the physical logic...the just great. We all know what CPUs and chips are right ? have you ever tried to find out what the actual logic inside looks like ? The problem these days is that things have become so miniaturised that without a very powerful microscope its impossible. So being able to that here is like the Cherry on the wonderful Saturn 5 cake fro me.....Peace.

                      It still boggles the mind when I think about it. Back in 1969, no manual, no instruction on how to fly and land on the moon, but the DID it! And while it seems primitive by today's standards, the way they crafted these things is impressive.
