Three MSUM physics majors participated on Nov. 4, 2011 in the international University Physics Competition. Shouvik Bhattacharya, Meredith Mc Linn, and Murshid Saqlain participated as a team, in which they modelled the cost of sending a payload into lower Earth orbit and submitted their formal solution for professional review. The team of three was sponsored by the MSUM Society of Physics Students.
