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!
