The right tools for the job... The U.S. Moon missions would never have gotten 10 feet off the ground without the pioneering engineers and manufacturers and the amazing machines they created to turn science fiction into historymaking headlines. From nuts and bolts to rockets and life support systems, every piece of gear was custom made from scratch to perform cuttingedge scientific tasks while withstanding the violent rigors of space travel. Now heres your chance to climb aboard the capsule, put on a spacesuit and learn the real stories behind the right stuff.
We tell the story of how a group of computer scientists grappled with the challenge of navigation of a round trip to the Moon back in the days when computer code and software hadnt been invented and computing power was a fraction of what it is today.
