Will perform lunar landings and show some of the AGC support gear at Vintage Computer Festival West

We will be at the Vintage Computer Festival West this weekend at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, California. August 3 and 4.

Mike will hook up his FPGA gate by gate exact replica of the Apollo Guidance Computer and fly some lunar landings to demonstrate the central role the AGC plays in operating the LM. We will have the DSKY replica and LEGO LM model operating in demo mode, not hooked to an AGC. Also on hand are other devices we created to do the restoration and make use of the computer.

If you are in the area, stop by and say hello. Mike Stewart and I will be there both days, Ken will join us on Sunday and we expect Marc to stop in during the festival.
