    Thanks for coming to Alabama Linus! Dang good job explaining the computer.... especially the power systems and the heat management system. I had honestly never thought about these for the Saturn V. For those asking, I'm currently in Germany on a last minute trip so I didn't get to finish my video yet. Coming soon!

      @Norwegian Smores of course U are right , the astros were closer to GOD and saw his divinity while going to moon and they are afraid to say what they saw, hence their beliefs the almighty you do believe in GOD RIGHT?????

      who hooo, been looking on info on this part of the V stack, maybe U should mention it was this unit that kept the APOLLO 12 moon mission on course when a few secs after liftoff in Nov 1969 LIGHTNING STRUCK the rocket and knocked out all systems except this one, kept it going to orbit and complete themission...............

    Russian computers of the 60s. For example, Gagarin’s flight was calculated on the Strela computer 1961. Use a page translator.

    I thought it sounded kind of nuts that those batteries were 5,300ah (2:15). Other sources say they're 350ah, that sounds closer to reality. For a little context, a 125lb lead acid truck battery is more like 150ah.

    Hey Linus! I've watched Destin's channels for several years. I don't always understand the scientific info, but I welcome the chance to learn. I'm now 70 yrs old. I watched the moon landing with my mom and her oldest sister! There is a silly aspect to the tale... We went to Aunt She's house in the middle of the night, to watch it on her color TV... It was however, broadcast in black n white! LOL Thanks for your scientific explanation! I'll be watching your channel too. Thanks, Jessica

    considering the thousands of years humans have been on this planet and knowledge that have been forgotten or destroy (library of Alexandria, the Mayas...) i think we are behind, i just hope 1 day humans stop hating, discriminating each other so we can give a bigger jump forward and even do more huge advances...

    Just finished reading One Giant Leap by Charles Fishman. It goes into great detail on the design and creation of the Apollo computers and the rope core memory that was used it was great. Also on Audiobook.

    Small correction - radiators DO work in space, and are used on most missions. The method of heat transfer you’re referring to, where air flows over the radiator, is actually convection.

Fuckin excelent as always but you forgot one important question! CAN IT RUN CRYSIS!? even low spec I won"t judge I just wanna know lol :P
