Main Question or Discussion Point

"Dr Ian Chapman has been named one of the UK’s top young physicists by the Institute of Physics, winning the 2013 Maxwell Medal, given to those who excel early in their career. The scientist from Abingdon has joined the likes of Stephen Hawking in being awarded a national prize for his groundbreaking work."

He is part of a team working on the ongoing JET project working to find a way of using nuclear fusion as a cleaner and virtually limitless source of energy.

Scientists use the JET machine to create miniature stars, 10 times hotter than the Sun, releasing vast amounts of energy in the process. Dr Chapman’s research has discovered ways to stop the JET machine, and future reactors, from breaking.
