Welcome to the Society of Physics Students, CSUN chapter

Fall 2011

We are looking forward to an exciting new start this Fall 2010 semester. SPS hopes to see many new faces around the halls of Live Oak and Eucalyptus, and most of all, in LO1105.
The physics department will be hosting a freshmen orientation on Thursday, July 28th, and we encourage new undergrads to meet as many people and ask as many questions as possible. The road ahead will be hard, but ultimately rewarding. Please take advantage of the help we have to offer.

Looking forward to seeing many new people there.

It’s likely that our Moon emerged from a giant collision between Earth and a body the size of Mars. But getting that story, or any other, to fully square with the evidence has proven difficult.
