The Apollo Guidance Computer: Architecture and Operation (Springer Praxis Books)
Autor: Frank O'Brien
Architecture and Operation Broschiertes Buch The technological marvel that facilitated the Apollo missions to the Moon was the on-board computer. In the 1960s most computers filled an entire room, but the spacecraft's computer was required to be compact and low power. Although people today find it difficult to accept that it was possible to control a spacecraft using such a 'primitive' computer, it nevertheless had capabilities that are advanced even by today's standards. This is the first book to fully describe the Apollo guidance computer's architecture, instruction format and programs used by the astronauts. As a comprehensive account, it will span the disciplines of computer science, electrical and aerospace engineering. However, it will also be accessible to the 'space enthusiast'. In short, the intention is for this to be the definitive account of the Apollo guidance computer. Frank O' Brien's interest in the Apollo program began as a serious amateur historian. About 12 years ago, he began performing research and writing essays for the Apollo Lunar Surface Journal, and the Apollo Flight Journal. Much of this work centered on his primary interests, the Apollo Guidance Computer ( A G C) and the Lunar Module. These Journals are generally considered the canonical online reference on the flights to the Moon. He was then asked to assist the curatorial staff in the creation of the Cradle of Aviation Museum, on Long Island, New York, where he helped prepare the Lunar Module simulator, a L M procedure trainer and an Apollo space suit for display. He regularly lectures on the Apollo computer and related topics to diverse groups, from N A S A's computer engineering conferences, the I E E E/ A C M, computer festivals and university student groups.

Maps That Changed The World
Autor: John O. E. Clark
This stunning compilation features some of the world's most famous maps, stretching back to a time when cartography was in its infancy and the ? edge of the world? was a barrier to exploration. Organized by theme, and from all corners of the globe, the 65 illuminating examples include Lewis and Clark? s maps of the American West, early British maps of India and Australia, beautifully engraved Dutch maps of the 16th century, sinister Utopian maps of the Nazis, and maps that presaged brilliant military campaigns, charted the geology of a nation, or divided a continent up between its European conquerors. There are even fantasy maps from Lord of the Rings!

The Code: Silicon Valley and the Remaking of America
Autor: Margaret O'Mara
The true, behind-the-scenes history of the people who built Silicon Valley and shaped Big Tech in America Long before Margaret O' Mara became one of our most consequential historians of the American-led digital revolution, she worked in the White House of Bill Clinton and Al Gore in the earliest days of the commercial Internet. There she saw firsthand how deeply intertwined Silicon Valley was with the federal government-and always had been-and how shallow the common understanding of the secrets of the Valley's success actually was. Now, after almost five years of pioneering research, O' Mara has produced the definitive history of Silicon Valley for our time, the story of mavericks and visionaries, but also of powerful institutions creating the framework for innovation, from the Pentagon to Stanford University. It is also a story of a community that started off remarkably homogeneous and tight-knit and stayed that way, and whose belief in its own mythology has deepened into a collective hubris that has led to astonishing triumphs as well as devastating second-order effects. Deploying a wonderfully rich and diverse cast of protagonists, from the justly famous to the unjustly obscure, across four generations of explosive growth in the Valley, from the forties to the present, O' Mara has wrestled one of the most fateful developments in modern American history into magnificent narrative form. She is on the ground with all of the key tech companies, chronicling the evolution in their offerings through each successive era, and she has a profound fingertip feel for the politics of the sector and its relation to the larger cultural narrative about tech as it has evolved over the years. Perhaps most impressive, O' Mara has penetrated the inner kingdom of tech venture capital firms, the insular and still remarkably old-boy world that became the cockpit of American capitalism and the crucible for bringing technological innovation to market, or not. . . .
