Teaser Trailer for Spring 2018 Honors Physics

Posters for Spring 2018 Honors Physics

Move. Feed. Think. Adapt. Survive.

This spring, SMU Honors Physics students will explore what it would take to engineer an autonomous artificial life form capable of making decisions, completing missions, and winning the struggle for survival in extreme environments. Search and rescue in a raging inferno. Breach thick ice to hunt for life during a deep dive into the oceans of Europa. Retrieve vital oxygen from across a storm-swept Martian plain bathed in radiation from a solar flare. What would be needed to endure in such places, and how would your life form think without being guided? Join us for the Spring 2018 Honors Physics Sections (PHYS 1010) to engage directly in these cross-cutting questions.
