Micro Lord’s Prayer Helped Put Man on the Moon 50 Years Ago

A 19th century microscopic Lord’s Prayer may be directly responsible for leading to the NASA computers that put the first man on the moon 50 years ago.

Micro photography was invented by John Benjamin Dancer in 1859. Microscopic Lord’s Prayers eventually became the reference standard for showing scientific advancements in miniaturization. Many others would follow, all using the Lord’s Prayer as their selection of choice.

Micro Lord’s Prayer entries would be displayed at the largest science and technology exhibitions in the world, including the 1851 Great Exhibition in London; the 1915 San Francisco Exposition; the 1933 Chicago World’s Fair Century of Progress; and others.

Micro photography eventually led to 20th century data storage media such as microfilm and microfiche. These technologies, in turn, led to micro photo-lithography and the development of computer memory chips and circuitry. Many of the first practical applications were for early computers used in NASA’s burgeoning space program.

These computerized design, testing and guidance systems (tracing their printed circuitry roots back to micro photography) provided the necessary calculations to put the first man on the surface of the moon on July 20, 1969.
