Verified Authentic

Item #054


During the 1970s–80s, NASA used state-of-the-art computers from the company Modular Computer Systems. These "MODCOMP" systems were used in processing and controlling the telemetry of many space projects including the Voyager probes, Skylab, as well as the early Space Shuttle launches. 

NASA has obviously upgraded their systems since, and so we were able to purchase several used MODCOMP computer boards and carefully extract the microchips so that more people could share and enjoy this artifact.

By purchasing one of these chips, you are purchasing a piece of computing and space history. While the look and function of these components may vary, each served critical data to and from some of humankind's most ambitious space exploration projects.


Acrylic display capsule included for chips.
