I spent the whole day walking through this museum[^]. It must be more than 25 years since I went there for the last time. As an excuse: I did not live here im Munich back then and would never have guessed to end up here.
Among the most memorable displays:
A Apple I which looks even cheaper than my old Netronics Elf II, which also was a kit from more or less the same time.
I walked through and around a Junkers 52 airplane.
Took a deep look into J2 rocket engine (Saturn V, second stage).
Had a good look at an A4 rocket from the fins up to the nose. The grandpa of both the Russian and American space programs.
Parked my behind on a Cray I and pretended not to know that it was not a round vistor bench Smile | :)
Got many pictures of the inside and outside of a Sikorsky S-55, but found no way to climb into the cockpit without getting thrown out.
Turned the propeller of a Messerschmitt 109 when nobody was looking and could not get close enough to the Messerschmitt 262 to do more than take some pictures.
And there was a Zuse Z4 on display, but I think to have heard that it's only a replica and that there are no more surviving early Zuse computers.
The language is JavaScript. that of Mordor, which I will not utter here

I hold an A-7 computer expert classification, Commodore. I'm well acquainted with Dr. Daystrom's theories and discoveries. The basic design of all our ship's computers are JavaScript.
