LOS ANGELES, CA - MAY 21, 2015 - Dr. Leonard Kleinrock stands next to an Interface Message Processor, the host computer that sent the first message over the internet in 1969, in his original laboratory on May 21, 2015, on the UCLA campus in Los Angeles, California. Kleinrock is Distinguished Professor of Computer Science at UCLA. He developed the mathematical theory of packet networks, the technology underpinning the Internet, while a graduate student at MIT in the period from 1960-1962. The birth of the Internet occurred in his UCLA laboratory (3420 Boelter Hall) when his Host computer became the first node of the Internet in September 1969 and it was from there that he directed the transmission of the first message to pass over the Internet on October 29, 1969.(Photo by Bret Hartman/For The Washington Post)
