About the cover

Designed by Brad R. Conrad, the cover image is a photo mosaic of the Crab Nebula  composed of 1600 photos from the 2019 Physics Congress and SPS chapter reports going back  two years. lt was inspired by a similar piece gifted by SPS to Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in 2008 for hosting a Physics Congress. The gift to Fermi Lab is shown above with its designer, longtime SPS staff member Tracy Schwab. For more on Schwab, see page 3.
