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; We'd love to hear what you think about the website too!

The Annual Fusion Weekend 2018

The Fusion weekend next year will be held at the University of York, Plasma Institute on 10th - 11th March.

It will take the usual format - talks/lectures on the Saturday, a short AGM in the afternoon, and in the evening a meal at COSMO York. Sunday we are planning a much more relaxed social affair and plan to visit the Jorvik Viking museum where we have obtained discounted entry. Download Saturday Programme here...

Fusion will provide lunch and refreshments on the Saturday. Attendees will need to organise any overnight accommodation, and pay for that and the Saturday evening meal.

If you are interested in attending please contact Dwyn or Greg on, indicating if you will be at Saturday evening's meal for table booking.
