@nicko, amazing isn't it that the technology in an avrrage Smartphone today is multiple times more advanced than that whuch put man on the moon. I think so anyway Smile

What is sad though is the relatively halting advance of man in space since then. I guess when the competition vanished the US ran out of interest...

in a way you are
A mobile phone has vastly more power than the Appolo module
The best comparison would be a fairly modern washing machine



ps and remember it was 3-16 bit systems

The computer had 2048 words of erasable magnetic core memory and 36 kilowords of read-only core rope memory. Both had cycle times of 11.72 micro-seconds. The memory word length was 16 bits: 15 bits of data and 1 odd-parity bit. The CPU-internal 16-bit word format was 14 bits of data, 1 overflow bit, and 1 sign bit (ones' complement representation)
