Nebulous, Acrylic on Canvas, Julie Glossenger, 2017
Inspired by NASA imagery of the Crab Nebula.


Chromatography, Photograph, Charles Johnston, 1970s
I submit this humble image as an example of the vast amount of work done by lab rats, everywhere, who work to provide the data that is used by regulatory agencies such as the EPA, OSHA, FDA, et al. This was taken in the lab in which I, and about 30 other Techs and Scientists, worked in the 1970s. This is a chromatography column used to dry extracts of water samples. An inverted image of liquid/liquid extractors can be seen through the reservoir of the column. The samples would then be concentrated for identification of pollutants using GC, GC/MS, and HPLC. The data gathered by this lab was used by the EPA to define the regulatory limits of various hazardous compounds that industries were then pouring into streams and other sewers.
