Nuclear Engineering Club
The Astronomy Club observes astronomical phenomena and studies celestial objects through modern techniques and with newly developed technology. The jewel of the club is the automated 8” Meade LX=200 Schmidt-Casegrain telescope. Many solar system planets as well as stars and galaxies are observed in the Cadet Observatory, located on the roof of Bartlett Hall.

Society of Physics Students
The West Point chapter of the National Society of Physics Students is a national professional physics association explicitly designed for students. Membership is open to anyone interested in physics. Members have taken trip sections to Boston, NYC, and Washington D.C. to museums, planetariums and laboratories. Every year, several highly deserving cadets are selected for membership in Sigma Pi Sigma, the National Honor Society within the Society of Physics Students.
