FUSION is 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 now have around 150 members many of whom are studying at various levels of the physical sciences study program. We welcome current and past students or anyone with a general interest in physics and astronomy.
FUSION AGM 2014
The Fusion AGM 2014 will be held in Lancaster the weekend of 22nd/23rd March.
On the Saturday there will be a joint visit with Alchemy – the OU Chemistry Society - to Heysham Nuclear Power Station. It will commence at 11am and last for approx two to two and a half hours. For those travelling by public transport – there is a good bus service to Heysham, but there is a mile walk to the power station. We will consider hiring a mini bus from Lancaster if enough people are interested. There is a limit of 20 places, so while friends and family are welcome to attend priority will be given to members and those attending the AGM, on a first come basis.
Details for the rest of the weekend are still to be finalised – but will include a meal at a local Weatherspoons on the Saturday evening, the AGM and talks on Sunday morning, and possibly an activity on the Saturday afternoon and/or evening.
Fusion will provide lunch and refreshments on the Sunday, but members need to pay for the evening meal and arrange any overnight accommodation. On campus B&B is available via http://lancaster-catering.co.uk/ - this is very popular so it is advised to book early.
If you are interested in attending contact Dwyn or Cath for further details at
– we need names for the Heysham visit by 8th February as security clearance is required.
