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.

Welcome to Our New Website

We hope you like our new website, please keep popping back. We've got lots of exciting changes planned, including online membership sign up and an e-commerce shop to buy all our fabulous fusion goodies, as well as physics news and exciting events.

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!


Fusion AGM 2015


Next years AGM will be the weekend of 7th/8th March at the OU campus at Milton Keynes. It will take the usual format of lectures, possibly lab tours and the actual AGM on the Saturday, and there will be a meal that evening.


The main dome of the OU observatory is out of action at the moment, but we are hoping that it will be up and running by March so that  (weather permitting) we will be able to do some observing on the Saturday night. An activity is planned for Sunday morning for those staying overnight.

Fusion will provide lunch on the Saturday, but members will need to pay for the Saturday evening meal  arrange any accommodation they need.

You can attend all or just a part of the weekend, and family and friends are welcome to join us.
Contact Dwyn on fusionevents@live.com if you are interested in attending.


Walton Hall


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.
