Welcome to Fusion

FUSION is the Open University Physics & Astronomy society. We were formed in 2001 by students who recognised the need to create a society for OU students and graduates whose primary interest is in physics & astronomy. We have over 150 members many of whom are studying at various levels of the physical sciences study program. We organise regular events of interest to members, have a regular newsletter, a Facebook group. We welcome current and past students or anyone with a general interest in physics and astronomy.

You can keep up with all the latest on the website and Fusion at our Facebook page; facebook.com/groups/oufusion/. We'd love to hear what you think about the website too!

The Annual Fusion Weekend 2016

The annual Fusion weekend 2016 will be held at Manchester university on 5th/6th March. We have organised lectures and lab tours. and there will also be a short AGM on the Saturday afternoon and a meal on that evening. We are hoping to visit Jodrell Bank Observatory on the Sunday morning. More detials can be found on the Fusion Weekend page.


We need new faces and ideas on the committee – we hold 4 committee meeting a year but 3 are via Skype – so you do not need to travel or even get out of bed/get dressed to attend! If you feel that you can spare the time and are interested in joining the committee please contact Dwyn.
