In summary, the Antikythera Mechanism Instruction Manual reveals the inner workings and functions of the world's oldest known analog computer. It provides detailed instructions for assembling and operating the complex device, which was used for tracking astronomical events and predicting eclipses. The manual also sheds light on the advanced knowledge and technology of the ancient Greeks, who created the device over 2,000 years ago. It is a valuable source of information for understanding the history and development of technology.

How did you find PF?
I found physicsforums while looking for information about a DIY antikythera mechanism.
I'm a high school student studying physics, CompSci, and engineering.
