Fran Blanche has another great video update on her Apollo DSKY guidance computer display project that’s worth checking out. In this update Fran goes into detail about the connectors, tiny relays, and electroluminescent lighting used in the original DSKY displays, and the challenges with finding those parts today. In addition Fran looks at a technical note from NASA that details the specifications for the lighting of the DSKY and will help her build a replica that’s as close to the original display as possible. I’m looking forward to the next update on this awesome project!
