Restoring the Apollo lunar module computer

In view of the 50th anniversary of the first step of the man on the Moon, a team of 4 specialists was formed to restore the on-board computer, the Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC), which was used in Apollo missions. This computer was designed in the 60s (this copy is probably 1966), when the miniaturization of computers was just beginning. There were 15 copies built in this series (this one was purchased ~ $ 2.1 million by NASA).
