    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. ( )

      Flearther McPlane how could you construe I believe in space from the statement I made? Are you slow or something? New found reality? I know all about everything you said plus way more including the books removed from the Bible that directly prove the earths true makeup. I know the truth about our past and the coming future persecution. The majority of people that are asleep could use your info but your barking up the wrong tree here bud. Good luck with that, and calm down. You seem to take this too personal, it’s a shame more people don’t know. But treating them like you are above them for knowing a little bit of knowledge is not right. Humble yourself, you will catch more with honey than vinegar...

      @Unknown Infamous
      What I know is, space is a hoax!
      100% of the time, rockets go up, level off and fall down within just a few hundred miles into an ocean.
      What I know is, NASA lies about EVERYTHING! Thousands of hours of video proof. Their own videos!
      They are an unsubstantiated self regulating authority on "SPACE" and everything to do with it.
      The "Mars Rover" is being filmed on Devon Island. The landscape of Devon Island and Mars are nothing short of exactly the same short of the sepia color added for effect.
      The Moon Hoax has already been proven beyond doubt to anyone with at least 2 working brain cells.
      Research 'bubbles in space'...
      Research Flat Earth
      Research Operation Paper Clip
      Research Operation Fish Bowl
      Research Operation Domonic
      Enjoy your new reality...
      The one you've been following is for the retarded. That's not an insult, it's a FACT!

      Flearther McPlane he actually knows we didn’t but is too scared to go against the grain. He used to have a video with all kinds of proofs we didn’t go. But his nerd fan base that keep him paid , persuaded him to remove his videos and follow like a good boy. He’s a sellout..

      Dr. David Banner F.E.S. I asked the same question. Lol Except I accounted for a torr 10 and the magic O-Rings used in the Cupola. Don the lousiest liar Pettit. Dude gets caught lying all the time and acts like a deer in headlights. Lol

      SmarterEveryDay what happened to your epic videos confronting the nasa lies? Like magic O- Rings and Van Allen Radiation belts or create one with the physics needed to achieve a quarter million mile trips fuel ratios and needed oxygen tank space plus heat and radiation deterrents. Effects of a vacuum of torr 10 on thrusters or ignition sources.. is a firmament really too far fetched? Considering the Sierra Leone sky stone or Libyan desert glass..

                  LMAO! Still trying to reinforce the Moon hoax.
                  The rocket went ''''''splash'''''' in the ocean. No one was on board and that's - the end!
                  ...or the beginning of the same practice which has retarded people (self prescribed intellects) thinking we actually go to the imaginary place they call, "SPACE"...
                  You should rename our channel to, "Dumber Every Day". It's far more appropriate!

                                                  so I found a cool science anomaly that I haven't seen before and I searched it up and can't find it or an explanation. if you take a 2 by 4 block of aluminum and you put it on its side, so the short side is facing up. then if you slightly slant the block and roll a cylinder magnet down at a slight angle it will seem to bounce off the side of the wall as if there is an invisible barrier.

                                                    At 2:00, you are describing "core" memory, which was the type of memory used in most computers up to around 1975-1980, when semiconductor memory first entered the scene. I worked on an IBM 1620, a 1401 and others, including a minicomputer made by a company called Microdata, which all used core memory. (I'm 72.)

                                                    I still have three 8K memory boards from that Microdata computer. (Failure of this type of memory was common, so I decided to save boards when they were replaced.) I remember they were priced at $3,500 each back then, or around 5 cents/bit. At that rate, 16GB of RAM (128 billion bits), now commonplace in PC's, would cost 6.4 billion dollars (without accounting for inflation)! That's over double the entire Apollo program budget. (Good thing they didn't need 16GB.)

                                                    Just as shown in this video, I can see the little cores arranged on the grid of wires. I was amazed back then, and I still find it impressive today. Here's an interesting fact about core memory: In order to read a bit, the computer would actually write a zero at that location. A sense wire running through all the bits on that plane would detect a pulse if that location originally contained a 1 because reversing the magnetic direction would induce that electric pulse. A second cycle was then required to restore the bit back to a 1 (or leave it as 0 if no pulse was detected). This was known as "destructive" read, requiring two machine cycles. One cycle on the Microdata was one microsecond (1 MHz). A modern CPU running at 4GHz is 4,000 times faster. But one cool thing: if the computer lost power, core memory was preserved! It wasn't 100% reliable, but often, when the computer was powered back on after a power failure, it could continue running where it left off!

                                                    Anyway, I am wondering what to do with these memory boards. Right now, they're just gathering dust in my closet. Any ideas?
