Moonjs: An Online Apollo Guidance Computer Simulator

Moonjs is an online Apollo Guidance Computer (AGC) simulator. It is a port of Virtual AGC by Ronald Burkey from C to javascript/asm.js using the Emscripten compiler.

AGC was the main computer system of the Apollo program that successfully landed 12 astronauts on Moon. There was one AGC on each of the Apollo Command Modules and another one on each Lunar Module. There was also a second backup computer system called Abort Guidance System (AGS) on the Lunar Modules, which is simulated by Virtual AGC, but not the current version of Moonjs.
