Default Time features Apollo computer pioneer Margaret Hamilton

URL:http://time.com/3948364/moon-landing-apollo-11-margaret-hamilton/

One of the key people on the software side the AGC, and founder of Hamilton Technologies.
The article includes a photo Hamilton, then part of the MIT team,
next to a stack of computer listings as tall as she is.

Nice of _Time_ to give us this little bit of history from behind the scenes,
on the anniversary of the 1st moon landing.

Nice article. I've seen articles about Hamilton before, but this one
had a few tidbits I didn't know.


I saw her picture in a book several years ago & remembered "The code is taller that she is!"
