Apollo Guidance Computer Restoration

A little late for the 50th Anniversary due to some IP issues going on, but thought that those who are interested in Apollo, or the computers of that era might get a kick out of this series of videos showing how a group of space computer nerds managed to get hold of, and restore to working order, an Apollo Era AGC.

Wow. Plenty of people have built replicas, but actual specimens from the time. That;s way cool.
