In the Winter issue of The SPS Observer
, SPS explores the question "When physics and life get hard, what gets you through?" You told us, on Facebook and Twitter, and we noticed some common themes. Throughout this issue, we bring you words of wisdom from your peers who have been there and found ways to keep going and keep growing.
Also in this issue, Meeting Notes: SPS Reporters at Science Conferences.

New Paper Published in JURP
Hydrogen Production Using Solar Energy
The objective of this project is to create clean fuel for transportation using hydrogen powered by solar energy. Hydrogen has been generated by solar photovoltaic (PV) array and then collected for data analysis to demonstrate efficiency of the hydrogen production in all the steps of the experiment. The hydrogen produced from the electrolysis process was either stored in a metal hydride canister or directly fed into Proton Exchange Membrane (PEM) Fuel Cell to generate electricity. A hydrogen fuel cell remote control car has successfully designed, and demonstrates at least one hour operation per hydrogen charging at room temperature.
|The SPS Observer
Each issue of The SPS Observer contains interesting feature articles, physics problems, society news, announcements, meeting information, and breaking news in physics and related sciences. It is published on paper and mailed three times per year (Fall, Winter, and Spring) and published online once per year (Summer). Subscriptions are included with your annual SPS national membership dues.
The Journal of Undergraduate Research in Physics (JURP)
The Journal of Undergraduate Research in Physics (JURP) is a peer-reviewed, online journal of the Society of Physics Students (SPS) and Sigma Pi Sigma, the physics honor society. JURP is devoted to archiving research conducted by undergraduate students in physics and its related fields, and is a vehicle for the exchange of ideas and information by undergraduate students. Papers in experimental physics, theoretical physics, or educational research in physics are welcome.
A one year subscriptions to Physics Today is included in your annual national membership dues. Physics Today, the flagship publication of The American Institute of Physics, is the most influential and closely followed physics magazine in the world. Physics Today Online (PTOL) extends the magazine's coverage with links to articles and news from around the web. PTOL also features an online research center, bringing together the latest articles from a growing number of online publishing platforms including Scitation and arXiv.
SPS & Sigma Pi Sigma Information Handbook
This annual publication provides local, regional and national contact information; program information; and procedures and forms for organizing and running SPS and Sigma Pi Sigma chapters, meetings and events.
