The Boeing Museum of Flight is doing Moon landing events this weekend. The
Living Computer Museum is showing an IBM 360/91 maintenance panel wired to
a Hercules 360 emulation. The emulator is running Apollo era FORTRAN code
to do orbital predictions and display tracking data on a map. The code is
taking the International Space Station tracking data and displaying the
orbital track and current position in real-time.
