During the lockdown, every conversation, which occurs either online or behind a mask while standing the recommended six feet apart, has started with a story of experiencing a new order to our lives. As someone born in Texas, this is not a welcome change from the previously polite discussion about the weather which used to be the only shared experience agreed upon as a safe topic.
As a result of more than 50 years of publishing work on the cutting edge, Leonardo has become the leading international peer-reviewed journal on the use of contemporary science and technology in the arts and music and, increasingly, the application and influence of the arts, design and humanities on science and technology.

Review by Sheila Pinkel, Emerita Professor of Art, Pomona College, International Editor of Leonardo, firstname.lastname@example.org
Dr. James L. Carter, geoscientist, and associate professor emeritus at the University of Texas at Dallas, passed away on September 21, 2019, in his home at the age of 82. Dr. Carter was one of the leading geologists on the Apollo mission to the Moon, and played a role in training the Apollo crews in the field of geology. His work led to numerous achievements, including the collection of Genesis Rock, the largest lunar sample at the time. He was later recruited by NASA Johnson Space Center in Houston, Texas, to pioneer the creation of a simulated prototype for a lunar sample known as JSC-1.
