 When I think of all the banks of IBM computers with a large array of tape drives in the first floor of Mission Control, I marvel at the concentration of computing power. In the 1960s it represented the penultimate in computer power. In 2015 it is less than a smart phone. The on-board computer on the Lunar Module was less than a digital watch. I cannot imagine what it will be like 50 years from now. I'll ask my grandson. In 50 years he will be 80.
