A scientist from Peterborough is attending parliament on Monday to present his physics research to a range of politicians and a panel of expert judges.

John Coxon (27), currently a researcher at the University of Southampton, will be competing in the ‘SET for Britain’ competition.

John’s poster will cover his research into the Earth’s reaction to solar wind through studying how it affects the planet’s electric currents and magnetic fields.

His poster will be judged against hundreds of other scientists’ research after beating thousands more just to get his poster shortlisted.
