7 Reasons why I love the Apollo Space Program

This summer marked 50 years since man landed on the moon. At work, we have a monthly Beer & Tech session, which is something work-related and something not. I decided to bore the team on my love of the Apollo Space program. It wasn’t just the tech and computers around the program, but some of the principles they used and the legacy it left.

  • Barbecue Mode
  • Goal – Moon, Man, Decade
  • Accelerating the growth of Information Technology
  • Raising the bar for society “If we can put a man on the moon….”
  • All up testing
  • Women in important roles
  • Rope Memory
