Met Office Cray supercomputer. The Met Office, the UK's national weather monitoring and forecasting service, began to use computers in the late 1950s and early 1960s. By the early 1990s, they had begun to use Cray supercomputers capable of ten billion calculations per second. This is one of the Cray Y-MP computer systems. Photographed at the Met Office headquarters in Bracknell, where the Met Office was located from 1962 to 2003.
