March 2024 – 47.1 Cover

The cover of this issue of Science Editor features a work of collage art titled “Glass Dreams 03” by Kyle Hurley. This image of a retro-styled astronaut phasing between dimensions juxtaposed against an unruly natural background is evocative of the theme of this special issue. The astronaut is in a liminal space, transitioning between worlds, potentially transforming as they go. Whether we are witnessing an arrival or an exit is unknown, but a transformation is likely occurring, the nature of which may not be fully clear to our protagonist at this time.
