Who do you think have the worlds most powerful computers? Well if you say NASA, you'd be quite wrong.

Well actually, NASA probably do, but the shuttles definately DO NOT. Apparently some of the bods at NASA have been trawling through Internet auction sites looking for replacement parts for the now aging shuttle fleet, and if you have any old IBM pc's knocking about dating from the early 80's, it might be worth a lot more than you realise...

The shuttles run on the old Intel 8086 chips, which are less powerful than the old ZX81 computers!

And if you think thats bad, just think whats keeping Concorde in the air...
