Dr Simon Foster
Dr Simon Foster is a Solar-terrestrial physicist from Imperial College London, and a Verifier on Duck Quacks Don’t Echo for Sky 1. He regularly speaks about Space science, Astronomy, solar physics and climate change.
Simon always dreamed of being an astronaut and whilst 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. This lead to Simon studying for a PhD in Solar-terrestrial physics, specialising 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.
