The Virtual AGC


The Virtual AGC simulates the operations of the Apollo Guidance Computer in software. Being home sick the last few days, I’ve been challenged to do more with my (few) waking hours (real bad virus, maybe flu — definitely takes you down a few notches) than just watching TV.

So I came across Ron Burkey’s site and downloaded his (still) incomplete AGC emulator, which includes a graphical representation of the original Apollo DSKY data entry pad.

I’ve been running through a few of the simulation tests since. Haven’t got to anything really meaningful, but for a Cold War era kid like me this is a real thrill.
