We are taking CHM Live on the road! Join us at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco for their weekly Nightlife program.
On July 21st, 1969, 600 million people flocked to their televisions to watch the history-making moment when Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin set foot on the moon. This was more than just a giant leap for mankind, it also marked an unprecedented technological feat made possible by computers, both human and machine. What role did computing play during the lunar missions? How did NASA scientists develop the technologies that got astronauts to the moon -- and back?
We will discuss these questions and more with historian Glenn Bugos and Solar System Ambassador Frank O'Brien. This conversation about technology and the Space Race will be moderated by Center for Software History Director David C. Brock.
