The cover painting, In Dimension, exemplifies one of the major Society of Physics Students (SPS) initiatives, Future Faces of Physics, both by being a self-portrait of an aspiring physicist and by addressing the emerging science of dynamical systems and fractal dimensions.

In this issue of Radiations, we celebrate the many dimensions of Sigma Pi Sigma and its members through stories of their career paths, philanthropic efforts, and service to the physics community. The diversity of our Society is well-represented in the above painting, an award-winning piece from the 2008 Sigma Pi Sigma Quadrennial Congress created by SPS member Jeanette Powers from Rockhurst University. See more of the award-winning artwork from the Congress on page 5.
