Tools for computational physics become more powerful.

Tools for computational physics become more powerful. The American computer designer Seymour Cray introduces the CRAY-2, which performs 10^9 mathematical operations per second. By the 1990s, such supercomputers are simulating highly complex physical phenomena, from the distribution of galaxies in the universe and the behavior of terrestrial storms (above) down to the molecular structure of water.
