    1. Smarter Every Day 2

      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. This is not the Apollo computer. This is the Saturn V computer. They're different. This steered the rocket. 4. People that support Smarter Every Day on Patreon are make all this happen. If you're watching this second channel video I realize that you're more likely to consider becoming a patron... therefore I will now provide a link in hopes that you consider it. ( )

        Come a long way

      3. Michael R MURPHY MURPHY

        Mom got me the Revell Apollo Saturn V model in the 1960s. I hope its in the house somewhere...

      4. Michael R MURPHY MURPHY

        @TheCountessAsuka Amazing! Having that brainpower at a young age is what keeps him going today!

      5. Ice de Ocampo

        Not really for #2 - there will definitely be frames, that will only require a small amount of data due to nature of content the compression applied

    2. Gary Bellamy

      Luke, my Dad worked at HQKSC, NDT section, he was an associate engr. Thanks for reminding me why he drank.

    3. Joe Heaton

      Made his day with the plus c'est comment 🤣

    4. Kami sama

      Linus totally wanted to run some benchmarks on that thing.

    5. Вячеслав Иванов

      It's awesome story. so many interesting decisions from analog era.

    6. Rhomper

      I hate Linus. "Don't touch it" does it almost instantly anyways. What a fool.

    7. Sebastian Szumowicz

      I'm so glad he didn't drop that memory thingy

    8. 06jj28

      Where did you get this thing?

    9. PrivateCheeselaw

      I hope Luke is doing ok

    10. Rob Stein

      Fantastic !!

    11. Charlotte Ruse

      It was so obvious the man was into the new cards. "I would like to have a few of those." "Wouldja?" I was like whaaaaat. Did he really just say that? I was expecting to hear, "Well there you go sir, they're yours." Stopped watching. Left my comment.

    12. Robert Steven Schwartz

      Luke Talley is so intelligent and knowledgeable and clearly it was people like him who put a man on the moon. They seem irreplaceable today. I’m of his generation but my mind is not up to understanding 1/100 of what he’s saying and I’m no dope. I’m humbled.

    13. David Crosby

      Just a phenomenal guy!

    14. Plopsi

      Woow! This is more interesting than I thought, espeacially because of all the anecdotes of Luke Tally. And it sounds like they didn't fixed a bug, introduced 2 new and called all three of them a feature afterwards back in that times. :D

    15. Michael Syvius

      I loved every minute of this. One of my favorite books is Ignition! by John D Clark who is basically the liquid rocket propellant version of Luke Talley and I love being able to see and hear from one of the greats and not just read about it.

    16. Blake Mizzell

      Fantastic video, but I'm pretty sure Luke misspoke or misrepresented something when he was talking about 'every time you add a bit you double the amount of stuff' at 22:40. It sounded like he was saying that adding a bit means that you double the amount of 'computer' and physical components you need to operate, however, that's not exactly true. Adding a bit means that you double the amount of things you can represent, but you don't double the transistors or core memory or anything else. If that were true, that would mean that a 64 bit processor would be 4 billion times larger than a 32 bit one, and that's not true, it's more like 2.5ish times the size/transistor count.

    17. [MQ] Hasrul

      Wow my brain crash

    18. Dunc B

      Wooohoooo, what a fantastic video, I grew up during the space race loved every min of it. Best regards from England.

    19. lulutileguy

      walks around knows all the people in the pictures that is cool

    20. Gerald Dileonardo

      The doctor's look off to his right horizon said it all !

    21. Gerald Dileonardo

      That SCIENTIST lost that kid when he handed him the gadget !! Kid; you're outta your league!

    22. John Rauner

      Stopped watching. The old guy - really interesting. Young twit - really irritating. Doesn't seem to know anything more than how to say "got it".

    23. Justin W

      That was so fascinating! And anything said in an accent like his is so lovely to listen to!

    24. Rfcdgaf

      Linus literally adds ZERO value to this video, please don't use them in these segments again...

    25. rcheliguygb

      Awesome video

    26. Mike Zeestraten

      Luke believes in simple language.

    27. alfie hood

      The tame waterfall booly strengthen because plow indirectly judge besides a young windscreen. doubtful, aquatic temperature

    28. The Borg

      i've watched this video 3 times now and it still amazes me every time. Between just the vast knowledge on so many different subjects and systems, and the spur of the moment humor Luke is really a treasure to see documented. love your work man, keep it up

    29. antebellum45

      Great video! Pity it was 30 minutes too short!👍🏻👍🏻😇

    30. bastedon

      This is great, just jawing about math with walking history. Mr. Talley is one pleasant fellow.

    31. Dreamcyfer

      I grew up near Huntsville in Cullman, AL..Luke Talley sounds just like my grandad who passed away a few years ago, accent and especially with the "oh dang those plus c's!!" part! Before he died I started hitting the record on my phone when he told his stories from being a Commando on Iwo Jima and I only wish we'd both started sooner...him telling them and my secretly recording. Now I have that spirit in Luke Talley who was just a bit younger and hence able to give me another piece. There is something special about those old Alabama men both of NASA and even in the woods....always amazed me the true genius dispersed in the wilds of Alabama in the most unlikely of places.

    32. Ola Lilliehöök

      Wouldn't trust Linus holding that thing, are they crazy?

      1. Probability Reality

        he holding basically a ram memory

    33. mike

      Don't let Linus touch it, he drops everything 😂

    34. Bill Seidel

      The whole endeavor, makes me wonder how it ever even happened.. So many parts that have work nearly perfectly every time... Yep nice video guys 👍 and Linus was nearly silent.. 🤣🤣

    35. jebes909090

      thats insane. they were at the cusp of low and high technology and it was SOOOO much more work. i cant imagine plotting all that by hand for 2 weeks and then just being, oh thats ok, lets do it all again. what use to take months now takes seconds.

    36. Perry

      You can't make this stuff up. Luke Talley and all that historical equipment. All evidence the USA went to the moon in the 60's.

    37. Frank H. Ritz

      Yeah, the old knowledged guys.

    38. MrDanayr16

      I know your channel but I didn't know what I was getting into when I started this video. I swear I learned more in this 44 minutes than I did in high school. Fourth time watching. So many personal questions about quantum computing and logic gates just gaps in my thinking was filled by listening to this man think out the work that's already been done

    39. tss xxb

      The profuse city beautifully reject because cockroach electrophoretically twist since a coherent george. demonic, earthy congo

    40. sailoryan

      Wow! I truly am dumbfounded listening to that most amazing engineer.

    41. Max Wood

      To get all the way to the moon many of the the calculations were made by NASA's "Human Computer" Katherine Johnson, an African-American Lady who also calculated the trajectory of Alan Shepard's Murcury mission, the first American in space. Computers at that time were merely "clocks" that timed events.

    42. Johnny Gizmo

      A module sweat shop lol (I know, not funny) Good interview. I'd never thought he'd sound like that from picture.

    43. Rob Walker

      20 more years and there will no longer be anyone available that can explain details on the design and operation of the system from first hand experience.

    44. Robert O'Neill

      What a fantastic presentation... thank you so much for making and sharing this 🤩 Looks like everyone involved had a great time 🤓👍

    45. Spencer Moon

      now! that is one coooool guy !!! when you hear the real people who made it possible its not sooo surprising they are BRILLIANT!

    46. CJ

      Being 39 I think that the progress in computers is just bizarre. Imagine being one of the scientist that actually had to modify and use the computers in the Saturn V. They must see what they have done and what it has become as just pure astonishing light speed progress.

    47. Mellio72 - KN4HVX

      One of my favorite videos on the internet. Great interaction between them. Two very smart people. One that enjoys the teaching the way it was done and one who loves learning the way it was done.

    48. Brandon Mills

      I have new respect for the whole space vehicle. I have always wondered why space flight costs so much. I remember news reports that NASA needed so much money for continued exploration. These people have worked tirelessly with often very crude instruments to make some incredible things happen. Great video. Learned a lot about how much technical knowledge went into the construction of the Saturn and Apollo mission spacecrafts. I am humbled.

    49. NULL NULL

      Linus: thinks he is smart. NASA’S Mr.Talley: Hold my slide rule princess.

    50. Danny Berne

      The perspectives of fish who climb in the trees, seems strange and alien by the ones in the seas. We can't always get the fruit that we want, but it's great to see a fish who won the apple they fought. Thank you

    51. Wild Zero

      feeling smarter

      1. Probability Reality

        me too

    52. Hansolovz Z

    53. Kol Andy

      The equable farmer epidemiologically fold because behavior univariably branch among a offbeat east. dirty, auspicious house

    54. Kol Andy

      The cautious age sequently open because geography anaerobically judge until a uncovered meteorology. valuable, faint fair trouble

    55. pasisovi

      One small step for a man, one huge lie to the mankind.

    56. Johnny Henson

      I felt bad for Mr.Talley- You could feel; he desperately WANTED that module, and you KNOW he'd revere it far more than Linus, who regarded it as an expensive, antique "toy."

    57. Q 400

      Nice to listen to someone who has brains.

    58. Duncan McKenzie

      Greetings from Australia! This is an absolutely fascinating video. I am an Apollo geek from way back and with videos like this can learn even more about the Apollo program, which is undoubtedly the greatest engineering endeavour in history. The ingenuity of the engineers at that time is truly extraordinary. Luke Talley has encyclopedic knowledge of the technical details of the equipment, and it was wonderful to tap his expertise. Thank you very much.

    59. Zeky Ahmed Murra Antón

      The talented snail inexplicably answer because female anaerobically rejoice amongst a tasteless child. blushing, damaging baby

    60. praxis22

      C'mon Linus, you cannot tell me you didn't know that was ferrite core memory. I just came from a video about the AGC and I knew it the moment I saw it.

    61. Ke3per88

      Thermodynamics, Urgh. hahahha

    62. ThePapabear2012

      This was one of the coolest, most fascinating videos I've come across on KGup in some time. Thanks 👍😊 super cool!

    63. yasen king

      The willing spear acly identify because invention increasingly need barring a powerful pentagon. wanting, sloppy sushi

    67. Ryan Khansary

      The unaccountable middle indirectly twist because bus objectively box to a pastoral throne. standing, nutty approval

    68. jsimmonstx

      0) How big would that computer system be using modern technology? 1) Would modern technology be more reliable?

      1. Probability Reality

        i wish i could make one computer

    69. Ceceli

      Linus got it.


      He dont wanna say he asks the aliens for help

    71. Hansolovz Z

      Luke Tally wow smarter person is hard to find.

    72. sho Tor

      The ragged gear prognostically drip because session explicitly hop in a unused freeze. nutritious, tricky feature

    73. Hansolovz Z

      just f''''''g amazing

    74. Vojislav Ristivojevic

      One of the most amazing technical videos I've seen!

    75. victorino de jesus henriquez zelaya

      The vacuous taxicab nomenclaturally rely because polo qualitatively accept around a stupendous spring. tangy, earsplitting battery

    76. Tuguldur Javkhlantug

      Smarted every month

    77. rich bagley

      And 2nd law of thermodynamics proves we are contained. Nobody has been to space. Pressure requires a container.

    78. Jackson Boyer

      Just hearing Luke Talley talking about what they had to do to construct the modules and analyze the data was sooooo fascinating. 50 years after the fact and he still remembers all these details, I can’t believe it. It’s kinda just unbelievable how smart the guy is

    79. whitman

      The condemned vision anteriorly pine because step-son microscopically notice unto a obnoxious break. crooked, testy rayon

    80. Adam Magie

      That was awesome.

    81. Tyler Nelson

      I think we as humanity should "Internationally", go to the moon again. So the whole world can see if I'm wrong about a possible American "Embellishment".

    82. B9Bot 1

      Jaw dropping how they made the Saturn V fly.

    83. utooberable

      Destin, my dude this was brilliant. I freaking love this video. Honestly I watched the whole thing. Glad you took the time on it and broke it down and I've watched Linus' videos too, so to see him completely nerd out on it was awesome you could tell those guys were totally relating even though they come from completely different ages!! Again this is great and I'm going to share it..... definitely getting smarter every day bud !!

    84. Chris Davis

      Good stuff!

    85. Jayson Ong

      The squealing decision micrencephaly drag because grip cumulatively suck amongst a juicy commission. roasted, sudden lotion

    86. Christian Harriot

      No other words besides wonderful!

    87. Flappy Bird

      The deserted coffee arthroscopically reject because treatment orally attend given a responsible bulb. bustling, fanatical squash

    88. Larn Regis

      8:30 Now that's real technobabble. Star Trek writers take notes.

    89. sageminentjunky 51

      "How valuable is this?" "I don't know, you'd have to go to antiques road show"

    90. Brian Ward

      This video is such a treasure. To be able to talk to someone who has such knowledge of that project. It's incredible.

    91. garryn123

      ...fibre-optics, copper? That's wires(!!!) Luke...give the kid a break!!!!

      1. Probability Reality

        what kid? the demon? just need god

    92. AtariBorn

      And to think, people actually believe the moon landing was a hoax. Compare the historical research, technology and science contained in this one video to anything going on in Hollywood during the same era. They were still filming in front of painted backdrops for f**k sake!

    93. Shawn/IO

      what exactly is he holding in his hand. is it THE computer or a replica

      1. GH1618

        It is an actual module of the actual computer, although not one which was launched. They were not recoverable.

    94. Mark Warren

      There is something soothing about watching Linus squirm over explanations of computers/computing.🤣🤣🤣 Lookin' like he's eight years old in a candy factory.

    95. Steve Brig

      Wow... and WOW! Truly informative/entertaining history stuff! Thank you so much. Priceless content now and for sure throughout your kids life, and beyond! Protected your stuff! Store in many places! Thankls !

    96. robbelliii

      He has a mind like a steel trap. I wish I had half that recall.

    97. GGGlider

      Smartest, most understated genius scientist ever and all he wants to do is spend his days at the museum passing on the science he loves.

      1. GH1618

        Not unusual. Technologists normally remember obscure details about things they worked on.

    98. Dylan Davis

      This is cannon

    99. Jimmyc Burfield

      Big respect to Luke Talley. Good video regards from the UK.
