ENIAC is retired

On 2 October 1955 at 23.45 the power finally shut off, the ENIAC retired.

It’s estimated to have done more arithmetic than the entire human race has done prior to 1945. Parts of the machine are exhibited at the Smithsonian (Washington USA), and a few other locations in the USA (computerhistory.org).
