As soon as flight controls started to be electronically enhanced, a tension between pilots and automatic control systems developed. I'm only a small way into the book, but it seems to be pulling the politics behind getting the space program funded, as well as the actual technology development tog

Mindell characters Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight (The MIT Press) This book was a great read from cover to cover. It provides great insight into the apollo program from the viewpoint of pilots and engineers. I started reading this book after hearing about it from fellow engineer. He suggested it as it paralleled the challenges we face of developing new technologies in parallel to the product development process. I highly recommend this book to those interested in the apollo program or those who enjoy a

    David A. Mindell Ô 3 summary review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô David A. Mindell characters Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight (The MIT Press) This book is not a casual read unless you are a driven reader of space histories (I am). It does however fill a huge gap in available literature about the Apollo Guidance Computer. It is very detailed yet flows well, and is narrative enough to not feel like a dry treatise. But you'd best be pretty interested in the topic, because the author assumes this and does not look back once he gets going as should be the case.

All a bit misleading. If you want to know how man and computer work in fight the this might be for you. But if you are interested in the Apollo space missions then I don’t think this is the book. I also found it to be very boring I’ve basically can

characters Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight (The MIT Press) David A. Mindell Ô 3 summary review ´ eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô David A. Mindell How human pilots and automated systems worked together to achieve the ultimate in flightthe lunar landings of NASA's Apollo programAs Apollo 11's Lunar Module descended toward the moon under automatic control a program alarm in the guidance computer's software nearly caused a mission abort Neil Armstrong responded by switching off the automatic mode and taking direct control He stopped monitoring the computer and began flying the spacecraft relying on skill to land it and earning praise for a triumph of human over machine In Digital Apollo engineer historian David Mindell takes this. This is to date the best examination and explanation of the computer partners to the astronauts in the Gemini Apollo and Shuttle programs I ve read dozens of books and papers on the LM alone and still had no concept of how advanced the AGC software was itself As a retired software engineer who s entire career took place long after the moon landings my concept of the crudity and limitations of the AGC has been completely upended What has always been a healthy respect for the software engineers at MIT has been upgraded to a worshipful awe of these people and the magic they wroughtThis is a must read for anyone for whom America s space program holds fascination Today s programmers and engineers should also check it out to learn or relearn how to design and write tight bulletproof software
