Product Details

Praise

[A] wealth of research that even the most informed space fans can enjoy. Mindell avoids the temptation to glorify the space program, instead dealing with the nitty gritty logistics involved in getting a man to the moon. Digital Apollo succeeds in providing an inside track to one of the most difficult technological challenges of the 20th century.—James Thorne, coolhunting.com

Mindell joyfully plumbs the deep history of Apollo’s decade-long clash between the MIT eggheads who built the computers and the thrill-jockey military test pilots who used them.

IEEE Spectrum

The book is a refreshing reminder that it is still possible to uncover new stories about the early years of the American space program.

Dwayne A. Day, Air & Space
