Video on Discovery and Restoration of the Apollo Guidance Computer

I've probably posted before about CuriousMarc's efforts to restore the DSKY Apollo Guidance Computer.  But this Wall Street Journal video sums it up and adds detail about where the computer they worked on came from:  the guy in the video found it discarded in a junk warehouse that he bought in the 1970s!  Those of us who scour those under-the-table parts boxes at hamfests will appreciate this find, and the ensuing restoration. 


  1. Bill -

    Did you ever watch the Applied Science video where Ben fabricates a DSKY display ? It's pretty neat:


    I wonder if Curious Marc and Ben ever cross paths - after all everyone in California knows each other, right ? :)

    Best Regards,
    Chuck, WB9KZY

    Yes, they know each other

    1. that was an interesting video but didn't see Ben or any mention of Applied Science, did I miss something ?

  3. Ben is there. 2 minutes, 41 seconds. Lifting (or trying to lift) one of the fuel cells.
