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 2017

The Fusion weekend next year will be held at the Open University campus at Walton Hall, Milton Keynes on 11th - 12th March.

It will take the usual format - talks/lectures on the Saturday, a short AGM in the afternoon, and in the evening a meal in a local hostelry followed by, hopefully, observing at the OU observatory, or a quiz if the weather is not kind. Sunday am we will be visiting the Grand Union Canal museum at Stoke Bruene. Family and friends are welcome to join us.

Fusion will provide lunch and refreshments on the Saturday and pay entrance to the museum for Fusion members. Attendees will need to organize any overnight accommodation, and pay for that and the Saturday evening meal. The museum is 12 miles north of MK – please inform us if you need transport, or can offer lifts.

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