First half of season 11

This is our 11th season of School of Young Physicists. The semester has been full of new challenges, obstacles and hope. We started the semester in September with an in-house session again, for the first time since February, although a significant part of the students joined the session online. However, the hope that Covid would slowly disappear was short lived, and in October we were back only online. 

This semester the sessions covered subjects of artificial intelligence and machine learning, magnetohydrodynamics, astrophysics and orbital mechanics, and the most recent one was computer game physics. In the experimental sessions we studied a rocket and whether it could take off of Mars and orbit it, whether a pan could stop a bullet and many other scenarios.
