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 2019

The Fusion Weekend 2019 will be held at the Open University Campus, Milton Keynes, on 7th and 8th September 2019.

The Saturday will take the usual format of talks in the morning, followed by the AGM and the Paul Ruffly Memorial Memorial Lecture after lunch.

There will be an evening meal at a local pub/restaurant.

We are also hoping to arrange lab tours and viewing with the telescope, weather permitting.

On Sunday morning we will be visiting Bletchley Park, home of the Second World War codebreakers.

Fusion will provide lunch and refreshments on the Saturday, and pay entrance to Bletchley Park for members.

Attendees will need to pay for the evening meal, and arrange and pay for any overnight accommodation.

You can attend all or part of the weekend.

Please contact Dwyn on, NOT on Facebook, to register an interest.
