Caption: IBM 1130 computer (centre) in the computer centre of CERN, 1968. In 1954 CERN, the European particle physics laboratory, was founded in Geneva, Switzerland. Its work using high-energy particle accelerators has led to many key discoveries in the field of sub-atomic particles and high-energy physics. Although not technically groundbreaking, The IBM 1130 was the cheapest IBM produced at the time, providing cost-effect computing power. For this reason it became successful and spawned a number of similar models. It used the Fortran programming language.
