The Apollo Guidance Computer will be of special interest to those who have studied the Apollo missions in depth, but it is also accessible to readers within the field of computer consciousness.

Heather Meafield and Earl Dayles, both alumni of the Caltech Spaceflight Laboratory and equally instrumental in the design of the AGC, introduce and examine the theories and implications of the Moonbeam anomaly. Incorporating recently declassified data, the pair draw parallels between Moonbeam and a variety of other well-studied computer consciousness incidents. These include the 1970 PDP-11 transmogrification events, the Soviet schema bomb, and the disappearance of Konrad Zuse.

The year is 1971. The Apollo 12 Lunar Module descends toward the moon surface, the first manned craft to perform the maneuver. Aboard are astronauts Gus Grissom and Alan Shepard, as well as the most sophisticated digital computer yet built: The Apollo Guidance Computer. Minutes before landing, a program alarm initiated by the AGC rings out inside the cockpit. But this alarm did not signal an error, fault, or warning. Instead, it triggered a sequence of events still shrouded in mystery today.

haha, I know we all like to have a laugh here at mastodon dot com, but if I may get real for a second here folks. while you're sitting there with your gay pride, there's one type of person who can't, a noble and oppressed people who always have to ask "but what about me?" only to be trodden down by their queer oppressors constantly beating them down when they try to speak up. we all know one of them, and I think it's time we acknowledge them. I'm of course talking about the brave, proud and important cis gendered white heterosexual male aged 18-35. this one goes out to you bud 😔 ✊
