Digital Apollo: Human and Machine in Spaceflight (The MIT Press)Basically can t finish *the book not 100% sure why it was even written This book was a great read from cover to cover * book not 100% sure why it was even written This book was a great read from cover to cover provides great insight into the apollo program from the viewpoint of pilots and engineers I started reading this book after hearing about it from fellow engineer He suggested it as it paralleled the challenges we face of developing new technologies in parallel to the product development process I highly recommend this book to those interested in the apollo program or those who enjoy a good story behind developing technology starting with the X 15 As soon as flight controls started to be electronically enhanced a tension between pilots and automatic control systems developed I m only a small way into the book but it seems to be pulling the "Politics Behind Getting The Space Program Funded "behind getting the space program funded Famous moment as a starting point for an exploration of the relationship between humans and computers in the Apollo program In each of the six Apollo landings the astronaut in command seized control from the computer and landed with his hand on the stick Mindell recounts the story of astronauts' desire to control their spacecraft in parallel with the history of the Apollo Guidance Computer From the early days of aviation through the birth of spaceflight

"test pilots and "
pilots and sought to be than spam in a can despite the automatic controls digital computers and software developed Very good not all that technical and great discussion about the role of automation which is
"relevant today with "
today with driving cars 737 Max etc I am very interested in the history of the apollo missions and the computer systems that enabled them to land on the moon This book is in two halfs the first is focused on the astronauts and the pre apollo planes and training The second half focuses on the computing and technology sef Bought this book to learn about the Apollo missions "computer to try and nderstand how it all works This book is "to try and nderstand how it all works This book is to do with the Apollo digital computer All a bit misleading If you want to know how man and computer work in fight the this might be For You But If You Are Interested you But if you are interested the Apollo space missions then I don t think this is the book I also found it to be very boring I ve. How human pilots and automated systems worked together to achieve the Night of the Werewolf (Choose Your Own Nightmare, ultimate in flightthe lunar landings of NASA's Apollo programAs Apollo 11's Lunar Module descended toward the moonnder automatic control a program alarm in the guidance computer's software nearly caused a mission abort Neil Armstrong responded by switching off the automatic mode and taking direct control He stopped monitoring the computer and began flying the spacecraft relying on skill to land it and earning praise for a triumph of human over machine In Digital Apollo engineer historian David Mindell takes this.

Ell as the actual technology development together It seems like each chapter can behas been developed into an entire book for instance there is development together It seems like each chapter can behas been developed into an entire book for instance there is entire book about the Apollo Guidance computer and this book devotes one chapter to the AGC The same is true for "the X 15 program and the divergence between pilots and astronautsThis is a good companion to TheApolloGuidanceComputer The "X 15 program and the divergence between pilots and astronautsThis is a good companion to TheApolloGuidanceComputer The book describes thoroughly how the AGC works and how And What Is Connected what is connected This book doesn t go into that level of detail but gives a good explanation of how and why the functionality of the AGC happened It also gives a synopsis of the last few moments of each Apollo landing on the moon The AGC book gives a better explanation of Apollo 11 s Program Alarms but this book explains why Ground Control gave the OK to continue so Lay My Burden Down uickly. Y engineers Digital Apollo examines the design and execution of each of the six Apollo moon landings drawing on transcripts and data telemetry from the flights astronaut interviews and NASA's extensive archives Mindell's exploration of how human pilots and automated systems worked together to achieve theltimate in flighta lunar landingtraces and reframes the debate over the future of humans and automation in space The results have implications for any venture in which human roles seem threatened by automated systems whether it is the work at our desktops or the future of exploratio.
