In the September issue of WIRED, read the untold story of Edward Snowden. Writer James Bamford spent three days in Moscow with Snowden, who shared how he evolved from young soldier to intelligence specialist to NSA whistle-blower to the most wanted man in the world. It is an unprecedented profile of an individual who is so passionate about his beliefs that he’s willing to set his own “life on fire and burn it to the ground.” Accompanying this WIRED exclusive is an incredible gallery of Snowden portraits by world-renowned photographer Platon.

Plus:
• The quest to learn what really makes us fat
• What’s Inside: Sriracha hot sauce (turns out, no roosters)
• The battery-powered rocket that could transform Formula 1 racing
• How Crayola turns wax into a rainbow of fun
• The A.I. that could conquer the world

It’s the WIRED vision of how innovation is shaping the future, featuring content not available in the print magazine.

CURRENT APP USERS: Once you install the latest version of the WIRED app and accept an upgrade to iOS 5, the WIRED icon on your iPad will disappear— you’ll now find WIRED in your Newsstand folder. Tap the image of our cover to read the latest issue and access your library. If you choose not to do both of these actions, the WIRED icon will remain on your device and the app will remain accessible through it. In addition, to take advantage of having the latest issue automatically downloaded on to your device, go into your Settings on your iPad, select “Store” and turn on the automatic download switch for the WIRED app.

Your iTunes account will automatically be charged at the same price for renewal within 24-hours prior to the end of the current period (another year for annual subscribers, another month for monthly subscribers) unless you change your subscription preferences in your account settings.
