How to Launch a Rocket from Your Smart Phone

BY SPENCER SMITH
@ VOL 16 ON FEB 18, 2016

“They had state of the art technology… [but] an inability to communicate is what jeopardised their mission.”

In “How to Launch a Rocket From Your Smartphone” from PechaKucha Night Madison (Wisconson)’s 16th volume, speaker Spencer Smith debates an urban myth many know well. You may have heard that the smartphone you own is more powerful than the computers that put men on the moon. Do you think that's really true? Is raw computer power the most important component of this question? Once you hear the data from speaker, you could have a different opinion.

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Tuesday, March 8th, 2016.
