The NASA moonshot initiative in the 1960s and 1970s was groundbreaking in the
use of information technology and advanced developments. Correspondingly
testing and quality assurance was mandatory, extensive, and equally inventive.
Using examples from history we will discuss current issues such as disaster
recovery (the Apollo One fire), test coverage (Apollo 13), specifications and
prototypes (the development of the LM), user ability and experience (Apollo 14),
and further education development (Apollo 17).

Learning Objectives:
Explore disaster recovery, High Availability, testing, and implementation of quality
assurance in a unique and informative way.

Testers and Developers interested in furthering QA knowledge. Anyone who was
interested in the Mercury/Gemini/Apollo program in the 1960s.
