The control panel is for the MANIAC (Mathematical Analyzer, Numerator, Integrator and Computer) computing machine used by Claire's father and his colleagues to study chaos theory. Ulam worked here as part of the Manhattan Project during World War II. Claire was born in 1944, a year after her father and mother had been recruited to the Manhattan Project. Photographed in 1955, at what is now the Los Alamos National Laboratory, New Mexico, USA.
