The picture on the front cover is a computer simulation of the Active Magnetospheric Particle Tracer Explorers (AMPTE) man-made comet, courtesy of Ross Bollens of the University of California, Los Angeles. The research was accomplished by utilizing two IBM 3090 supercomputers located in different continents: SERC's Rutherford Appleton Laboratory and NSF's Cornell National Supercomputer Facility, located in the United States, collaborated in providing exceptional supercomputing resources that enabled the researcher to develop a fully three dimensional space plasma computer simulation.
