A close-up photo of a blond woman wearing glasses standing next to a brown-haired woman wearing makeup. The bottom of the image fades to pink and includes a quote: "The brain is for America today what the moon was for America in the 1960s: the next frontier." The quote is attributed to Maria Shriver.
