2 minute tours – Cray Supercomputer exhibits at the CMoA

In March 2023, I had the opportunity to visit The Computer Museum of America (CMoA) in Roswell, just north of Atlanta in Georgia. Cray-History.net has been working closely with CMoA to create infographics and other information related to the Cray systems they have on display. David Laufer the Consulting Creative Director at the Museum was
