One small step for Open Source

My good buddy was celebrating the Apollo landing anniversary with his son this week with some very cool events, like building rockets, and watching the old clips of the landing, and he showed me something I didnt even know was out there. An open source computer simulator of the onboard guidance computer used in the Apollo mission. If you're a big kid, or want to introduce your own to a bit of space history, checkout this GPL simulator called Virtual AGC and AGS homepage.
