Nostalgia is something that brings back memories of a time that was completely different from now. We now live in the 21st century and still reminisce about things that happened 60-70 years ago. Most of the times, it is an image or a photograph that makes the younger generation who have lived their whole life in the age of computers, to see how things worked without them and how people did their work without the help of a computer to give them answers in milliseconds.

Here is an image of NASA scientists that has gone viral for the same reason- Nostalgia.

1 NASA – National Aeronautics and Space Administration

NASA or National Aeronautics and Space Administration is the premier space research agency of the US federal government. It is responsible for the United States’ civilian space program, the aerospace and aeronautics research advancement. It was established by President Dwight Eisenhower in 1958 and since then, it has achieved some of the most illustrious records like Apollo moon landings, Skylab space station, space shuttle and the Mars Rover. It has been working from the times when there were no computers to a time now where NASA invented and developed its own supercomputer.

Recently, an old photo of four NASA scientists working on an equation has gone viral on the internet. The picture is from 1961, the primitive years of NASA and shows four scientists posing in front of a huge board and then working on some equations, with all of them using stepladders to make full use of the board. This was a time before the advent of computers and it helped them present their work to their superiors in a better manner, since there was some time left for the arrival of Microsoft PowerPoint. Just imagine the trouble these people took then, to ensure that America stayed ahead in the race of reaching space and provided valuable data to their colleagues to work on.
