    Thanks for coming to Alabama Linus! Dang good job explaining the computer.... especially the power systems and the heat management system. I had honestly never thought about these for the Saturn V. For those asking, I'm currently in Germany on a last minute trip so I didn't get to finish my video yet. Coming soon!

          It's amazing, I work on aircraft and I have seen those EXACT SAME CANNON PLUGS in my systems that I work on. Granted now they're mostly self locking, but I have seen ones you have to secure with wire as well. The technology has advanced and we use fewer wires but the connectors don't change much even after 50 years.

                              If you wanna see inside the chips in the module look up Fran lab and eevblog they passed around a module that they took apart to show how they work and methods used in those elections is like no other stuff I have seen. I have been messing with electronics all my life 44 years and am an electrical engineer. Great video by the way. Keep it up.

                                Linus, you really need to do something about your OCD about touching your phone all the time.

                                            Why you need to say" if you believe in this sort of thing"? are you saying that those solders are made yesterday? could be though and i think that actual parts are not from 60's, theres no even aging signs on those boards ang solders. and copperwire should turn to green that old.

                                                        But Can It Run Crysis ??

                                                          I wonder how many years will it take to make a quantum smartphone. I know the quantum computer has a massive cooling system. But if we look back in history; A computer that had almost the same power and capacity as a the original PlayStation was the size of your average US middle-school. Just the 2mb of Ram in the original Playstation is 512x more than Apollo's Guidance computer. So will it be 50 years? Or maybe 20?

I don't always understand the scientific info, but I welcome the chance to learn. I'm now 70 yrs old. I watched the moon landing with my mom and her oldest sister! There is a silly aspect to the tale... We went to Aunt She's house in the middle of the night, to watch it on her color TV... It was however, broadcast in black n white! LOL Thanks for your scientific explanation! I'll be watching your channel too. Thanks, Jessica
