Some very clever folks have taken a 45+ year old Apollo Guidance Computer, and through heroic measures, got it up and running again.

Worth a watch for the more computer nerdy among us. (Dorothy: Hal should love

simulated the Apollo computer on a Raspberry Pi a couple of years

(And that Pis have gotten better since then. :) )
