The University Physics Competition is an international contest for undergraduate students, who work in teams of three and spend a weekend in November analysing a real-world scenario using the principles of physics and writing a formal paper describing their work.

Congratulations to year 2 students Jacob Kemprud, Matt Chouzouris and Bowei Zhang who achieved a silver medal in the competition.  Out of approximately 300 teams, this trio were ranked in the top 18% – which is an excellent achievement!

Their task involved analysing a spacecraft’s dynamics during acceleration in the problem ‘Sending a Light Sail Propelled Nanocraft to Alpha Centauri’.
