CSIRAC: Australia's first digital computerCSIRAC co-creator Trevor Pearcey (right) and INTERPROGRAM programmer Geoff Hill examine the machine at the CSIRO Radiophysics Laboratory in Sydney, 1952. During its 'CSIR Mk1' years, the machine was primarily used for problem-solving within the field of radiophysics. It was decommissioned in 1955 and shipped to the University of Melbourne where it began the second stage of its career as 'CSIRAC'. It took the University of Melbourne almost a year to reassemble the computer (there were no instruction manuals in those days). [Image credit: Museum of Victoria]
