Living Computers Museum Adds Two Iconic Cray Systems

Today the Living Computers: Museum + Labs added a pair of Cray supercomputers to its permanent collection. The Cray-1 supercomputer went on display at Living Computers this week and will be joined by the Cray-2 supercomputer later this year. Living Computers intends to recommission the Cray-2 and make it available to the public. “I honestly can’t overstate how important these two supercomputers are to computing history, and I am thrilled to be adding them to our collection,” says Lath Carlson, Executive Director of Living Computers. “Bringing these milestones back from the depths of storage has been an incredible journey, and we look forward to making them available to the public.” Living Computers will also host a private reception for the Cray User Group on May 9th to celebrate the new home of these Cray supercomputers.
