A 32-node Connection Machine-5 (CM-5) from Thinking Machines Corporation. The CM-5 cost $1.47 million. Following the tradition of naming its supercomputers after peaks in the Colorado Rockies, SCD named the CM-5: specifically, the CM-5 control processor "littlebear." It became available for users to conduct parallel experiments later in the year and was used for turbulence modeling, ocean modeling, and climate simulations. The machine was decommissioned in October 1996.
