    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. ( ) 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. ( )

      1. Hans Wurst

        Even after quite some research and technical understanding It still bends my mind how they managed to pull something off like the apollo program in the sixties..

      2. Sue Kennedy

        Too bad there is no video showing the inside of the LEM during ascent and descent. It was too hard to fake so they did not bother to make such a video. Nobody landed on the moon.

      3. 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"

      4. 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..

      5. 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.

      How do even come up with PHYSICAL BIT


      What I think is funny - is that there are millions of people that think the whole deal is fake - we never went to the moon - and the earth is flat etc . . .

    4. Don Cook

      This is just... beyond amazing! Thank you Destin, Linus and Luke!

    5. Janie Johnson -

      I’m surprised he didn’t drop it

    6. thenewbgamer64

      I think I smell the 8-bit guy making a game for this thing.

    7. Chester Ogilvie

      That’s brilliant and frightening that we went into space with that as a memory module

    8. Maj0r Muffin

      Funny how his name is actually Lucien but everybody even himself just goes with "Luke"

      9:24 lol, the guy is holding this piece with gloves, and linus just offers his hand 9:27 camera cut and he has gloves on :')

    14. It's Me

      First I was like: "lol, that guy in this SmarterEveryDay video thumbnail looks like Linus" And then I was like: "oh"

    15. DashKnow

      "You must have shot somebody to get that" that line make laugh for a minute

    16. Minør

      *They let Linus hold something at NASA?*

    17. linkinmore

      anyone know whether or not Linus drop the memory maybe off cam?

    18. butwhy

      I was waiting for linus to drop it.

    19. Flying Ace

      Forgot you live in AL and are a huge nasa fan, also a huge nasa fan and pc gamer from AL.. totally want to be your friend now lol.

      They steered it by using television… They also used the power it took by using television And when they built the international space station… They used television. Since all of this is a bunch of television…It is as real as Gilligan’s Island. NASA is the Star Trek station. I think Star Trek is more realistic though.

    22. Vadim Irnov

      It's Rocket Center like Jerusalem. The Saturn 5 rocket computer is Jesus. Memory modules are parts of the body of Jesus. (My English like Google translate).

    32. Josef

      curious what would happen if I told this guy the moon is flat

    33. GameCyborg

      the amount of work and money that went into the computer of the saturn v is incredible. Today a 4$ raspberry pi pico runs circles at the speed of light around it. the technological progress is just as impressive as the work those engineers and workers did to land men on the moon

    34. Hemant Fagna

      It's amazing we could even take off. It feels like we were more successful and faster at achieving said success back in the day than with modern, infinitely more complex and capable computes today.

    39. Bob Bart

      I like how they’re just walking into a museum with large suitcases and Linus is talking about very large bombs.

    40. david thomas

      So what he was saying about the more modules means more chance of unreliabilty and something going wron. A bit like the difference between a model T ford and a Mercedes or BMW with all the complexities built into them. Fom wathching the longer version its fairly clear that they wer very much built to a budget with a very narrow margin for error . wonder if the astronauts knew that ?, probably not )))

    48. Redmenace96

      I would venture to say humans have not engineered anything in the past 50 years to equal the Saturn V rocket. We have faster computers to do more things, in a smaller package, in less time. Nothing better. It is an amazing achievement of what humans can actually accomplish. (P.S. the Salt book is like 10 years old. Everyone has read that. It is great.)

    63. Bart Sola

      LinusDropTips handling a priceless, hand-woven, antique computer? 😬 For real though, the contrast between Luke's work and some of Linus' videos where the memory difference is incomprehensible is really something. The technological leap is incredible. It really makes you think of what modern computers are truly capable of. Fantastic video.

    64. Bojan Marsetic

      maybe a stupid question but.... is there any correlation with 8 bits/1 byte & 8 tones/1 octave?

    73. Nikko Logdat

      Wow I love how computers evolved years after year

    74. Chuck B

      I worked with Luke Talley at IBM-Charlotte during the mid to late 1980's. As a young engineer, I was enthralled by his stories of the space program. A few years ago, I was visiting my son in Huntsville where he works as an aerospace engineer and we decided to go to the Space and Rocket Center. While touring the Saturn-V, I told my son about Luke and related a story Luke told about firing the F-1 engines. A few minutes later, we arrived at the instrument ring and there stood Luke. I hadn't seen him in 25 years but he hadn't changed much. He was as sharp as ever.

      1. Tom Cooper

        I heard he's gone may 20 ... Can you confirm that ? Greets from Germany.

      Actually trading was not easy for me. Lost a lot of money through + 500, FBS also lost a lot of money to trading assistants and copy trader's, almost gave up on forex / Bitcoin trading. but a friend of mine introduced me to a good broker, at first i thought it was another way of wasting my hard earned savings. But my greatest surprise was my investment of $ 3,000 came out with $ 6,580 in 10 days trading ..... You just have to be patient with them till your trades are completed ..... To be honest I didn't just recovered all my previous losses .. I made much more than my past expenses .. actually she charges 15% which won't affect you in any way since her trading efficiency comes in multiples of investment ... I personally recommend Mrs jane trading services for best copy trading always trade with them and stop loosing your money .... reach out to her and believe me a trial will convince you Here's her contact details⬇️⬇️⬇️ +1 415-549-3865 @WhatsApp

      I can't express anything but respect for those people from the 60s and 70s building and "riding" those Saturn V up into the sky and the payload further to the Moon. Their ingenuity to solve problems and get humans on Earth’s pale satellite and back… We haven’t been able to repeat it. Let’s hope Artemis Program achieves it.

    89. Calvin Roberts

      I could be wrong but I think that at 14:06 Linus had his very own mini epiphany about life and aging. Just sayin'.

    90. Ter 30

      This is just insane. Outer space technology it is

      Yeah if you think 14 kb computer piloted the saturn V rocket you are really indoctrinated. BTW nobody's gotten past the dome.
