NASA program name choice[edit]

"Colossus was the name of at least one of the programs which ran on the very tiny computer in the Apollo Capsule which was a central part of the NASA project which first landed men on Earth's Moon. It is unknown whether the name was chosen to reflect a (then hidden) connection to the Colossus computer from Bletchley Park."

Is there any serious speculation that this was the reason for the NASA's name choice? — Matt Crypto 18:24, 11 Feb 2005 (UTC)

Colossus of Rhodes - Helios vs Apollo[edit]

Just a note: the link on this page to the Colossus of Rhodes says it's a statue to the god Helios, while the page itself says it's a statue to Apollo. Which is correct? —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talkcontribs) 17 May 2005

I don't know, but Colossus of Rhodes has since been changed to be "Helios", matching this page. —DragonHawk (talk|hist) 02:25, 23 April 2007 (UTC)Reply[reply]
