A couple of NASA computers dating back to the Apollo mission era have been
recovered from the basement of a deceased engineer in Pittsburgh. The
revelation comes from a NASA Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report,
which was released with the engineer’s name redacted in response to a
Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request.

Hundreds of tape reels — many of them unmarked — were found alongside the
computer. The labeled tapes appear to contain details of space
science-related missions such as NASA’s Helios and Pioneer 10 and 11, which
first flew by Jupiter and Saturn.
