People have reported being touched directly, lights will flicker in areas of the ship with no power, and items will move around seemingly with a mind of their own.

The computer was invented in Iowa by John Vincent Atanasoff. He had to go elsewhere to finish it, but it started here.

Stiai ca primul calculator electronic-digital a fost construit in 1939, la Universitatea din Iowa, de catre profesorul John Atanasoff si studentul sau Clifford Berry? :)
1942. The Atanasoff–Berry Computer (ABC) was the first electronic digital computing device. Conceived in 1937, the machine was not programmable, being designed only to solve systems of linear equations. It was successfully tested in 1942. The ABC pioneered important elements of modern computing, including binary arithmetic and electronic switching elements, but its special-purpose nature and lack of a changeable, stored program distinguish it from modern computers.
