This report describes my successful project to build a working reproduction of the 1964 prototype for the Block I Apollo Guidance Computer. The AGC is the flight computer for the Apollo moon landings, with one unit in the command module and one in the LEM.
I built it in my basement. It took me 4 years.
If you like, you can build one too. It will take you less time, and yours will be better than mine.
