Dr Jena Meinecke, University of Oxford
The origin of galactic and intergalactic magnetic fields is one of the greatest mysteries facing contemporary astronomy. Meinecke and her team are using the largest laser on Earth, the National Ignition Facility, to explain the origins and evolution of magnetic fields by recreating scaled astrophysical events such as supernovas.
