Great interview. Very fascinating!
I feel like this episode should be playing in the Computer History Museum.
It is unbelievable to see how much work it took to get us to space, and how far we've come with computing!
I loved this interview. IT was fantastic it hear about how he worked out the inner workings of those computers.
Magnificent. I've been publicizing this every way I can think of.
