Without any doubt, the oldest computer of mankind, known as the Antikythera Mechanism, is the greatest technological achievement of antiquity. A century was necessary in order to reveal its secrets. What is it though, that has since inspired four generations of scientists? We will navigate from its discovery by sponge divers, up to the latest word of modern technology in order to solve its puzzle. We will see how astronomy, mathematics and engineering, all come together at a small portable mechanical device. Our purpose is to familiarise with this “mysterious” construction.
