"So many interesting things about this historically precious video."

For one you learn, it took a hell of a lot of effort and skilled labor to make it. Nowadays this is all done with machines using photo etching on the nano-scale.

So many interesting things about this historically precious video. For one thing, you see the beginning of the development of integrated circuits. Anyone thinking that we didn't benefit enormously from the technology that NASA pioneered in the Space Race needs to watch this.
