Software in Space: The Computers That Made Apollo Missions Possible

Written by Praxent, a software company in Austin Texas, this website provides a history of how computers progressed to the point of making the Apollo mission successful. The website also includes valuable resources for students who are interested in computers and space exploration. Please note that we are not endorsing services from Praxent, but thought the information on computers and Apollo is educational to students interested in space development and exploration.
