Dr Simon Foster - Genuine Rocket Scientist!
Simon always dreamed of being an astronaut and while that dream didn't come true, he was so inspired by the images of astronauts on the moon and rockets taking off that he went on to study Physics and Space Science at university.
While studying for his degree he was introduced to the world of solar physics and became obsessed with sunspots, huge dark magnetic features on the Sun's surface.
This lead to Simon studying for a PhD in Solar-terrestrial physics, specializing in solar variability and climate change, essentially how the energy from the Sun can change yearly, monthly and even daily, and how this can affect the Earth's climate. Simon currently works at Imperial College London.
