Rebuilding The Apollo Guidance Moon Landings Computer

Information about how a guy spent 4 years building a working reproduction of the 1964 prototype for the Block I Apollo Guidance Computer. The AGC is the flight computer for the Apollo moon landings, and is the words's first integrated circuit computer. It has a staggering 12K of ROM, 1K of RAM and a 1.024MHz clock speed!

The site provides links to information about the computer and even provides a scan of some actual code used in the computer. The section of the code in the scan is titled "The Lunar Landing, Braking Phase". Pretty cool if that was the actual code used.
