About the cover: The Virginia Tech X supercomputer actually looks like a small warehouse full of computers. Only the hum of the air conditioning and the lights tell you anything is happening. But inside the shelves full of units and across the blue and grey wires, knowledge is moving and growing. Photographer Michael Kiernan’s creative cover image appears to capture the action behind the sterile covers.
