March 1965 Popular Electronics Cover - RF Cafe  Table of Contents

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Popular Electronics, published October 1954 - April 1985. All copyrights are hereby acknowledged.

As one who enthusiastically followed the manned space program from its early days in the 1960's, reading news stories and magazine articles on new technology and research never ceases to amaze me. When China or Russia flies the next man to the moon, the level of fanfare will be more focused on how the U.S. is no longer considered the leader than on how much more improved technology is and how much lower the risk is. We now have over a million total hours of men living in space versus a thousand or so in 1969. Semiconductors have totally replaced vacuum tubes - with vastly better capability and ruggedness. Mechanics and physics knowledge now versus then are barely comparable. Software simulation predicts and optimizes virtually every possible scenario and compensates for it. Autonomous spacecraft have landed safely on asteroids only a few miles across at distances where radio communication takes half an hour to travel the distance - not 1/4 of a second as with to the moon. To really get a good idea of how little margin the Apollo 11 astronauts and their vehicle had, I recommend reading Hanes' "Apollo 11 Workshop Manual."
