Congratulations Alex!

Alex Christofferson made a video of his "Physics of Osmos" capstone project results to submit to the Physics of Osmos Contest, hosted by Hemisphere Games and featuring a $500 Amazon gift card for the winner. 

He did a great job analyzing the conservation (and non-conservation) of momentum in the game, and of finding out that the mass of the motes is depicted by their area (rather then by their volume or length).

For his excellent work, Alex has won first prize in the competition!  Great job, Alex!


  1. Josh,
    This is totally awesome. Congratulations! Do you think Alex would be interested in talking about his experience to the global physics department sometime?
