Apollo 11 mission's 40th Anniversary: One large step for open source code...

JUL 20, 2009

On this day 40 years ago, Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first humans to walk on the Moon. This was quite an achievement for mankind and a key milestone in world history.

To commemorate this event the Command Module code (Comanche054) and Lunar Module code (Luminary099) have been transcribed from scanned images to run on yaAGC (an open source AGC emulator) by the Virtual AGC and AGS project.

For more information on this project, I recommend looking at the website and the open source project.

Here are a few links to the source code:
As the project evolves, look for syntax highlighting done with a special extension for google-code-prettify.
