Margaret Hamilton's Apollo code Half a century ago, MIT played a critical role in the development of the flight software for NASA's Apollo program, which landed humans on the moon for the first time in 1969. One of the many contributors to this effort was Margaret Hamilton, a computer scientist who led the Software Engineering Division of the MIT Instrumentation Laboratory, which in 1961 contracted with NASA to develop the Apollo program's guidance system.

Eisenhower. President Kennedy later declared the national goal of "landing a man on the moon and returning him safely to earth." By the end of 1960's, the goal had been achieved.

The landing approach was, by far, the most difficult and challenging part of the flight. Walking on the lunar surface was very interesting, but it was something we looked on as reasonably safe and predictable. So the feeling of elation accompanied the landing rather than the walking - Neil Armstrong Apollo 11 #apolloprogram #projectapollo #moon #neilarmstrong #apollo11 #pilot #pilots #astronaut #astronauts #kennedyspacecenter #johnsonspacecenter #astronomy #universe #universetoday…
