Title: programmers that put man on the moon
Post by: ApolloGirl on February 20, 2018, 10:27:47 PM
Much of the ground work of putting man on the moon was done by a bunch of young ambitious programmers that worked round the clock to meet NASA's impossible deadlines. The software running on the simulators was key to the success of the missions as every maneuver carried out onboard was calculated in advance by IBM computers in the Real-Time Computer Complex at Johnson Space Center. 

These are some of the programmers that helped achieve NASA's missions:
