    1. SmarterEveryDay

      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. ( seprom.info/clone/video/mdCCfZyhg4qlo6s.html ) 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. ( www.patreon.com/smartereveryday )

      1. Szafa

        Polish translation of the title sucks Should be "sterowała" not "sterowało" - typo "Mądrzejszy Każdego Dnia" - "SmarterEveryDay" means quite the opposite because it is ironic. Should be "Bądz Bystrzejszy Każdego Dnia" or "Każdego Dnia Bystrzejszy" or even "Codziennie Bystrzejszy"

      2. Edward Jenkins

        As this can be 4K, that means, 4096 * 2160 * 3 (each RGB value needs one byte per colour) = 26,542,080 bytes. That is about 26 megabytes per frame..

      3. Pedro Henrique

        Its too bad that the telemetry data was lost, all 14000 wheels!!! And that we can't go beyond the radiation belt today, I guess they were lucky back then They are so smart that their miraculous propulsion system can work in a vacuum, debunking Newton's third law of motion, isn't that awesome? And what about the real time communication with the president that we can't do even today because the path loss of signal is invert squared and it would require a dozen nuclear power plants to send the signal, imagine how smart they were to do it on a small generator of the space module, that little module could power half of the united states! It is a shame that the technology was lost and we can't recover it because it is too pricey, despite the daily 50 million dollars budget. Fun fact, the Bermuda triangle is right below where the space shuttles go beyond low earth orbit, what a coincidence that nobody goes there, I suppose it is a good thing so in case of accident the spaceship does not fall on anybody. I hope they can figure out how to see the lunar rover and the flag with a space telescope that can see in the far deep space but not in the neighbor moon. Thanks SmarterEveryDay, I feel smarter already.

        Ye

      5. nineball039

        @josh'sgoinham Germanium preceded silicon in semiconductors.

    2. Ferenc Szabo

      That's amazing! Today we're spoiled with Gbytes, writing software with auto correction, WTF? Those people were the real deal !!

    3. Mehrab Khan

      His eyes are glowing blue because he's a legendary character.

    4. Halal Man

      Linus?

    5. FatBoiShawn

      I didn’t know Linus went to the space and rocket center, I’m sad cus I was there a few weeks after this vid was posted bc my little sister had a field trip there

    6. Goku 4

      Linus is plain dumb wannabe in his field when average IT guy watch his video. Not hate comment, sorry. but he's pretty stupid

    7. Saurav Dubey

      He is running if and else statements. For all those programmers out there.

    8. Petros Komninos

      linus mood is so bad he feel trash there :P

    9. Danny Mckenzie

      "Thats a whole memory module? , you Must of shot somebody to get dat" God bless america.

    10. THE KING PUG

      Wow 🤩 so beautiful 14 kB NASA rocket to operate in in space for the Astros are heroes in American history in the world 🗺🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸🇺🇸 🚀🛰 Saturn 🪐 five rocket main system

    11. pedmanga2

      the best youtube channel

    12. LuizF Maluta

      Show...

    13. condensed milk

      even when not in his own video... he wears his own merch

    14. Nicholas Nugen

      That old man kept staring at that old computer like it was an old nightmare or something. He looked either really happy to have modern technology now, or very miserable.... I'm still not sure

    15. Edward Jenkins

      0:40 14 kilobytes, Today that size could probably hold a couple terabytes of data.

    16. Ezra Kainz

      Ok, who let Linus Drop Tips hold it? This is very stressful

    17. Root3264

      What really blows my mind is that these computers were expended. Think about that! So much work, so much craftsmanship, so much technology that has to work predictably and reliably every time completely built from scratch. Amazing times.

    18. reggiep75

      I'd always had my curiosities about how the computers were programmed but threading iron rings in opposing polarities to register a 0 or a 1 was interesting.

    19. Cizee SkilzZ

      In the 1960 this was 14 kilobytes now you have two terabytes for one third of the width

    20. Rudolf Wickond

      Saturn V controller developer: cant we just download an app for that?

    21. iwas legend

      If you want to be a bit smarter everyday, then understand that what NASA claims to have done is impossible.

    22. Distrax

      The more we get to know about old technology the more you realize what risk they took back then, let that sink in, We are more tcp now back then it was udp fire and forget no checks.

    23. FoxForceRecon

      But does it run doom

    24. dick baggins

      You don't realize how smart linus is until he talks jargon with a nasa scientist lol.

    25. John Doe

      This was the alpha version of RamCleaner for Windows - The cleanup was done by hand.

    26. Silver Spoon

      Scientist: «This is precious, because this solid state device now contains the last, complete and working version of the software for a lunar mission, a decade of mathematical formulaes fits in this cube, and may be, fifty years later be» Linus: «Impressive, now 32Kb is almo- Whoops»

    27. Veldeez

      I could listen to Luke talk about rocket science all day.

    28. Simply_Orange

      bro why'd you let linusdroptips hold the saturn 5 rocket computer

    29. Ruzael

      Yup. Back in the good ol' days, RAM was hand-woven. Me: ...wat

    30. crusinscamp

      building the server with these memory modules, you'd end up with a cube over 1,000 foot on each side, mind blown The continuous line of history is fascinating. This is but a fifty year step. I am amazed by what I've seen in my lifetime (born in '57, a month after mankind entered space). If you visit Luke Talley again, take a moment to ask him to reflect on the changes he's seen.

    31. psycho sss

      "Here we go again" Hilarious

    32. Nicholas Garrett

      imagine walking down the street and seeing SmarterEveryDay AND Linus Tech tips together in one package lol. My brain would explode.

    33. Brendan Matelan

      Each iron ring on the copper screen looks like it could be Linus’ earring.

    34. Eric

      It was clear that Luke was bothered that the memory module fell into millennial hands.

    35. Sbellins1109

      Do you really trust LinusDropTips (yes, DROP tips) with high value stuff? I was even able to drop aa really high priced modern cpu XD. Btw, i'm a big fun of Linus

    36. T-Mass

      3:27 suprised linus didn't drop it

      1. Canadians purchase 30 million Slurpee's a year

        ayo it's t-mass! your music is dope dude!

    37. Pedro Henrique

      Its too bad that the telemetry data was lost, all 14000 wheels!!!

    38. Neon Black

      Linus just seems to uncomfortable in this situation lol, sorry. I know he's a smart dude but yeah.. I was hoping he got more out of this

    39. 최대니

      analog-style digital

    40. Wind of change

      Still boggle the mind we were able to use such reach the moon with such "weak" technology in comparison to the stuff we have now.

      1. Miguel lopez

        The big technology leap was the rocket not the computer at this time, now we can use computers to land rockets.

    41. degz1s

      "DOES THIS THING HAVE NVIDIA

    42. VanquishedAgain

      The fact that they made it to the moon and back with this technology is probably the most impressive thing in the history of the world.

    43. Kenneth Goodman

      i didnt realize you were in huntsville! thats awesome. if i see you out there, next beer is on me! really love your videos

    44. John Boze

      So sad NASA Admin Jim B. is leaving NASA because of the "Incoming Administration". He was one of the BEST NASA Admins ever. Politics ended Dads Firing Room Career in 1974. Dad launched Buzz, Neil, and 22 other Astronauts.

    45. GhostCode

      People like me can only hope to be as smart as that computer scientist

    46. Kamikaze

      I find this extremely inspiring! I would love to work for NASA on modern, complex projects. Just incredible that they were able to accomplish so much with so little. But this sort of work is why we have had so much innovation since the 60's.

    47. meh

      dislike for letting linus carry it

    48. Nihilius

      Was, Linus wußte nicht was ein Ringkernspeicher ist? BOOOOON! :P

    49. Ishimura13

      If you want people who know Linus to pay atention, you shouldn't have him holding anything for extended periods of time 😅

    50. bruce

      computer engineer boomer is absolutely, positively the best genre of boomer

    51. Brendan Rosa

      This is the weirdest crossover ever.

    52. B L

      Always boggles my mind how much they were able to do with what little processing power they had.

      1. Miguel lopez

        Rocket math is fairly easy, getting the rocket to follow the math is hard.

    53. Ronaldo Brito Roque

      Do you think there are rare earth elements on Mars?

      1. Miguel lopez

        Yes, but the moon is closer.

    54. Jman 45062

      Fun fact: the Saturn V outside the space + rocket center in Alabama is a few feet shorter than the actual Saturn V. This is due to military base regulations, as it is right next to a massive military complex. They decided to shorten the launch abort tower, as that would be the least noticeable element.

    55. Bill McDonald

      I tell the kids these days that their phones have more computing power than what all of NASA - likely the planet - had back in the Apollo days. If it's a stretch, it ain't by much. It was totes Buck Rogers stuff back when I was a kid. I miss that seat-of-the-pants, no-holds-barred, brute forcin' it approach. Got a lot done that way. "You musta shot somebody to get that." I *love* it! Spoken like a true good ol' boy.

    56. YEETMAN5656

      This was brought to you by Private Internet Access!

    57. William Ruiz

      wow

    58. Don't Be Stupid

      That old guy seemed to get quite annoyed at Linus trying to finish his sentences for him. Incorrectly most of the time, btw.

    59. 266xUser

      Huntsville has so many Saturn V replicas

    60. Дима Самсонов 2

      NASA and Redstone engies are best.

    61. Evan Cooper

      Wow this is super interesting

    62. zack bunch

      So weird that I just stumbled upon your channel. Just moved to Huntsville a couple months ago. Seeing the Saturn V every morning on the way to the Arsenal is the highlight of my day

    63. HarryHoppins

      the fck is this lab coat all about??

    64. Randy Brongo

      The fact that they think this 14kb computer took people to the moon is funny.

    65. Shantanu Tyagi

      Non computer science people, are you referring the dictionary for every alternate word they say?

    66. Alec Gainey

      It’s videos like these that make me feel stupid

    67. joseimpact

      dam this was badass

    68. Dorothy Gray

      Cpu's back then: *took people to the moon.* My Cpu: *crashes pinball at 144k 10 fps.*

    69. Risky Bicky

      I imagine the astronauts being all nervous about how theyre gonna steer the thing, but then being told to relax bc they got state of the art tech to do it for them and theyre all like "aaah it's ok guys this tech must be rock solid its so advanced.

    70. ebels3

      I love old southerners. They're so laid back and funny, but don't mess around when things are serious.

    71. Susan W

      I wish they had the real Saturn five in a museum

    72. Han

      wow it's real "core"

    73. Nzack

      Wait this isnt ltt....

    74. 🤡 maymayman 🤡

      Luke Talley is a boss.

    75. Elloli

      7:30 linus' face though

    76. Zulqarnayeen Schaftler

      yeah, just take an arduino uno board then hook up it with your rocket, and it's ready to launch 😅

    77. Butternutバターナット

    78. Dakota Kelley-vinton

      Fun fact you can fit 714285 of these same computers use to fly a rocket to the moon on the original xbox's hard drive

    79. kai maier

      Just imagine how a RTX 3080 would have changed whole program

    80. henry the ounce

      Is that linus

    81. Christopher Santos

      3:08 I thought that was Bill Clinton

    82. Krog

      I could imagine Linus dropping it more like dropping 1 mill

    83. Tom Roach

      This stressed me out, in a good way. Amazing. I feel smarter every day!

    84. CWillkommen

      1:48 how much naqiuda did NASA need for that?

    85. Mubasshir Hossain

      "you must have shot somebody to get this" Destin: "No. But i'll get shot if i don't give it back" Linus: drops it Everybody: *O.O" Destin: runs

      1. Leandro Büttcher

        You stole this from @Ricardo Pesenti

    86. Kur Norock

      It's amazing to me that this old NASA dude remembers all of those details about work he did 60 years ago. I can't even remember how to play a video game I spent 2000 hours on last year...

    87. mesut balcı

      the most perfect video i have ever seen. thank u.

    88. CAT mo

      More information then I expected

    89. Arrynek01

      The more I know about Saturn V, the more it amazes me they made it to the Moon.

      Don't let the historical thing in linus hands D:

    92. Jim Bo

      Imagine suiting up to go to the moon tomorrow and they pull out this ancient computer. "Hey it got us there last time."

    93. Andres Felipe Borrero

      You almost learned something new that day by handing over that antique piece of hardware to Linus Sebastian....

    94. Colin Micheal

      Now I can say that Linus has been here, and you actually live here.

    97. Durand Robert Litchfield

      They let Linus hold it XD

    98. NOTVOLTA

      strange to see a guy like that knowledgeable about tech

    99. Dogol

      Can you imagine having to rewrite a program every time you use it?

    100. Matthew Shooshtari

      Super shout out to the women who made technology, and the history of the technology. I work on cloud system, containers and used to explore old 8086 machines. The history from vaccum tube computers, to these memory modules to the cloud. We stand on the shoulders of giants. Thank you Destin.
