  • 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. This is not the Apollo computer. This is the Saturn V computer. They're different. This steered the rocket. 4. People that support Smarter Every Day on Patreon are make all this happen. If you're watching this second channel video I realize that you're more likely to consider becoming a patron... therefore I will now provide a link in hopes that you consider it.

    • Come a long way

    • Ye

    • Mom got me the Revell Apollo Saturn V model in the 1960s. I hope its in the house somewhere...

    • @TheCountessAsuka Amazing! Having that brainpower at a young age is what keeps him going today!

    • Not really for #2 - there will definitely be frames, that will only require a small amount of data due to nature of content the compression applied

  • Nobody asked the NASA guy about encryption when sending commands? I would have loved more discussion there.

  • So a while(1) loop. This is how most systems work including UI, audio programming and game development ... and lots more.

  • Luke, my Dad worked at HQKSC, NDT section, he was an associate engr. Thanks for reminding me why he drank.

  • Made his day with the plus c'est comment 🤣

  • Linus totally wanted to run some benchmarks on that thing.

  • It's awesome story. so many interesting decisions from analog era.

  • I hate Linus. "Don't touch it" does it almost instantly anyways. What a fool.

  • I'm so glad he didn't drop that memory thingy

  • Where did you get this thing?

  • I hope Luke is doing ok

  • Fantastic !!

  • It was so obvious the man was into the new cards. "I would like to have a few of those." "Wouldja?" I was like whaaaaat. Did he really just say that? I was expecting to hear, "Well there you go sir, they're yours." Stopped watching. Left my comment.

  • Luke Talley is so intelligent and knowledgeable and clearly it was people like him who put a man on the moon. They seem irreplaceable today. I’m of his generation but my mind is not up to understanding 1/100 of what he’s saying and I’m no dope. I’m humbled.

  • Just a phenomenal guy!

  • Woow! This is more interesting than I thought, espeacially because of all the anecdotes of Luke Tally. And it sounds like they didn't fixed a bug, introduced 2 new and called all three of them a feature afterwards back in that times. :D

  • I loved every minute of this. One of my favorite books is Ignition! by John D Clark who is basically the liquid rocket propellant version of Luke Talley and I love being able to see and hear from one of the greats and not just read about it.

  • Fantastic video, but I'm pretty sure Luke misspoke or misrepresented something when he was talking about 'every time you add a bit you double the amount of stuff' at 22:40. It sounded like he was saying that adding a bit means that you double the amount of 'computer' and physical components you need to operate, however, that's not exactly true. Adding a bit means that you double the amount of things you can represent, but you don't double the transistors or core memory or anything else. If that were true, that would mean that a 64 bit processor would be 4 billion times larger than a 32 bit one, and that's not true, it's more like 2.5ish times the size/transistor count.

  • Wow my brain crash

  • Wooohoooo, what a fantastic video, I grew up during the space race loved every min of it. Best regards from England.

  • walks around knows all the people in the pictures that is cool

  • The doctor's look off to his right horizon said it all !

  • That SCIENTIST lost that kid when he handed him the gadget !! Kid; you're outta your league!

  • RIP Luke Talley

  • Stopped watching. The old guy - really interesting. Young twit - really irritating. Doesn't seem to know anything more than how to say "got it".

  • That was so fascinating! And anything said in an accent like his is so lovely to listen to!

  • Linus literally adds ZERO value to this video, please don't use them in these segments again...

  • Awesome video

  • Luke believes in simple language.

  • The tame waterfall booly strengthen because plow indirectly judge besides a young windscreen. doubtful, aquatic temperature

  • i've watched this video 3 times now and it still amazes me every time. Between just the vast knowledge on so many different subjects and systems, and the spur of the moment humor Luke is really a treasure to see documented. love your work man, keep it up

  • Great video! Pity it was 30 minutes too short!👍🏻👍🏻😇

  • This is great, just jawing about math with walking history. Mr. Talley is one pleasant fellow.

  • I grew up near Huntsville in Cullman, AL..Luke Talley sounds just like my grandad who passed away a few years ago, accent and especially with the "oh dang those plus c's!!" part! Before he died I started hitting the record on my phone when he told his stories from being a Commando on Iwo Jima and I only wish we'd both started sooner...him telling them and my secretly recording. Now I have that spirit in Luke Talley who was just a bit younger and hence able to give me another piece. There is something special about those old Alabama men both of NASA and even in the woods....always amazed me the true genius dispersed in the wilds of Alabama in the most unlikely of places.

  • Wouldn't trust Linus holding that thing, are they crazy?

  • Don't let Linus touch it, he drops everything 😂

  • The whole endeavor, makes me wonder how it ever even happened.. So many parts that have work nearly perfectly every time... Yep nice video guys 👍 and Linus was nearly silent.. 🤣🤣

  • thats insane. they were at the cusp of low and high technology and it was SOOOO much more work. i cant imagine plotting all that by hand for 2 weeks and then just being, oh thats ok, lets do it all again. what use to take months now takes seconds.

  • You can't make this stuff up. Luke Talley and all that historical equipment. All evidence the USA went to the moon in the 60's.

  • Yeah, the old knowledged guys.

  • I know your channel but I didn't know what I was getting into when I started this video. I swear I learned more in this 44 minutes than I did in high school. Fourth time watching. So many personal questions about quantum computing and logic gates just gaps in my thinking was filled by listening to this man think out the work that's already been done

  • The profuse city beautifully reject because cockroach electrophoretically twist since a coherent george. demonic, earthy congo

  • Wow! I truly am dumbfounded listening to that most amazing engineer.

  • To get all the way to the moon many of the the calculations were made by NASA's "Human Computer" Katherine Johnson, an African-American Lady who also calculated the trajectory of Alan Shepard's Murcury mission, the first American in space. Computers at that time were merely "clocks" that timed events.

  • A module sweat shop lol (I know, not funny) Good interview. I'd never thought he'd sound like that from picture.

  • 20 more years and there will no longer be anyone available that can explain details on the design and operation of the system from first hand experience.

  • What a fantastic presentation... thank you so much for making and sharing this 🤩 Looks like everyone involved had a great time 🤓👍

  • now! that is one coooool guy !!! when you hear the real people who made it possible its not sooo surprising they are BRILLIANT!

  • Being 39 I think that the progress in computers is just bizarre. Imagine being one of the scientist that actually had to modify and use the computers in the Saturn V. They must see what they have done and what it has become as just pure astonishing light speed progress.

  • One of my favorite videos on the internet. Great interaction between them. Two very smart people. One that enjoys the teaching the way it was done and one who loves learning the way it was done.

  • I have new respect for the whole space vehicle. I have always wondered why space flight costs so much. I remember news reports that NASA needed so much money for continued exploration. These people have worked tirelessly with often very crude instruments to make some incredible things happen. Great video. Learned a lot about how much technical knowledge went into the construction of the Saturn and Apollo mission spacecrafts. I am humbled.

  • Linus: thinks he is smart. NASA’S Mr.Talley: Hold my slide rule princess.

  • The perspectives of fish who climb in the trees, seems strange and alien by the ones in the seas. We can't always get the fruit that we want, but it's great to see a fish who won the apple they fought. Thank you

  • feeling smarter

  • i wonder how many republicans would anderstan any of thi?

  • The equable farmer epidemiologically fold because behavior univariably branch among a offbeat east. dirty, auspicious house

  • The cautious age sequently open because geography anaerobically judge until a uncovered meteorology. valuable, faint fair trouble

  • One small step for a man, one huge lie to the mankind.

  • I felt bad for Mr.Talley- You could feel; he desperately WANTED that module, and you KNOW he'd revere it far more than Linus, who regarded it as an expensive, antique "toy."

  • Nice to listen to someone who has brains.

  • Greetings from Australia! This is an absolutely fascinating video. I am an Apollo geek from way back and with videos like this can learn even more about the Apollo program, which is undoubtedly the greatest engineering endeavour in history. The ingenuity of the engineers at that time is truly extraordinary. Luke Talley has encyclopedic knowledge of the technical details of the equipment, and it was wonderful to tap his expertise. Thank you very much.

  • The talented snail inexplicably answer because female anaerobically rejoice amongst a tasteless child. blushing, damaging baby

  • C'mon Linus, you cannot tell me you didn't know that was ferrite core memory. I just came from a video about the AGC and I knew it the moment I saw it.

  • Thermodynamics, Urgh. hahahha

  • This was one of the coolest, most fascinating videos I've come across on CS-tv in some time. Thanks 👍😊 super cool!

  • The willing spear acly identify because invention increasingly need barring a powerful pentagon. wanting, sloppy sushi

  • That Man is amazing a true Science Jedi !!!

  • omg amercians are back :D

  • 42:25 solid proof that aliens exist right there

  • The unaccountable middle indirectly twist because bus objectively box to a pastoral throne. standing, nutty approval

  • 0) How big would that computer system be using modern technology? 1) Would modern technology be more reliable?

  • Linus got it.

  • He dont wanna say he asks the aliens for help

  • Luke Tally wow smarter person is hard to find.

  • The ragged gear prognostically drip because session explicitly hop in a unused freeze. nutritious, tricky feature

  • just f''''''g amazing

  • One of the most amazing technical videos I've seen!

  • The vacuous taxicab nomenclaturally rely because polo qualitatively accept around a stupendous spring. tangy, earsplitting battery

  • Smarted every month

  • And 2nd law of thermodynamics proves we are contained. Nobody has been to space. Pressure requires a container.

  • Just hearing Luke Talley talking about what they had to do to construct the modules and analyze the data was sooooo fascinating. 50 years after the fact and he still remembers all these details, I can’t believe it. It’s kinda just unbelievable how smart the guy is

  • The condemned vision anteriorly pine because step-son microscopically notice unto a obnoxious break. crooked, testy rayon

  • That was awesome.

  • I think we as humanity should "Internationally", go to the moon again. So the whole world can see if I'm wrong about a possible American "Embellishment".

  • Jaw dropping how they made the Saturn V fly.

  • Destin, my dude this was brilliant. I freaking love this video. Honestly I watched the whole thing. Glad you took the time on it and broke it down and I've watched Linus' videos too, so to see him completely nerd out on it was awesome you could tell those guys were totally relating even though they come from completely different ages!! Again this is great and I'm going to share it..... definitely getting smarter every day bud !!

  • Good stuff!

  • The squealing decision micrencephaly drag because grip cumulatively suck amongst a juicy commission. roasted, sudden lotion

  • No other words besides wonderful!

  • The deserted coffee arthroscopically reject because treatment orally attend given a responsible bulb. bustling, fanatical squash

  • 8:30 Now that's real technobabble. Star Trek writers take notes.

  • "How valuable is this?" "I don't know, you'd have to go to antiques road show"

  • This video is such a treasure. To be able to talk to someone who has such knowledge of that project. It's incredible.

  • ...fibre-optics, copper? That's wires(!!!) Luke...give the kid a break!!!!

  • And to think, people actually believe the moon landing was a hoax. Compare the historical research, technology and science contained in this one video to anything going on in Hollywood during the same era. They were still filming in front of painted backdrops for f**k sake!

  • what exactly is he holding in his hand. is it THE computer or a replica

    • It is an actual module of the actual computer, although not one which was launched. They were not recoverable.

  • There is something soothing about watching Linus squirm over explanations of computers/computing.🤣🤣🤣 Lookin' like he's eight years old in a candy factory.

  • Wow... and WOW! Truly informative/entertaining history stuff! Thank you so much. Priceless content now and for sure throughout your kids life, and beyond! Protected your stuff! Store in many places! Thankls !

  • He has a mind like a steel trap. I wish I had half that recall.

  • Smartest, most understated genius scientist ever and all he wants to do is spend his days at the museum passing on the science he loves.

    • Not unusual. Technologists normally remember obscure details about things they worked on.
