Happy birthday, Alan

In honor of Alan Turing's centenary, Charles Severance visits Bletchley Park where Turing contributed to codebreaking in World War II, building on work by the Polish Cypher Bureau. Bletchley Park displays powered-up replicas of the hybrid electronic/electromechanical BOMBE and Colossus devices from that period.

Meanwhile, the editors of Nature evaluate Turing's legacy with a series of articles.
