Air Force Retires 8" Floppies From Missile Control System

Ummmmm, what?!?!

The system, once called the Strategic Air Command Digital Network (SACDIN), relied on IBM Series/1 computers installed by the Air Force at Minuteman II missile sites in the 1960s and 1970s. Those floppy disks have now been retired.
