NERSCPowering Scientific Discovery for 50 Years

Forbes ASAP Picks Berkeley Lab Visualization as Cover Image to Illustrate Power of Supercomputers

February 22, 1999

An image created by Wes Bethel of the NERSC Visualization Group and Ken Downing of Berkeley Lab's Life Sciences Division graces the Feb. 22 cover of Forbes ASAP, a quarterly supplement to Forbes magazine. The image shows two different representations of the protein actin.

The 96-page issue of ASAP is devoted to supercomputers, past, present and future. Other images produced by the Viz Group are used in the print version, too, but don't show up in the web edition. ASAP reporter Scott Lajoie interviewed Bill McCurdy and Phil Colella as part of his research.
