I have a new feature article published in the January issue of BBC Sky At Night. It’s called “Frenetic fields” and is about magnetic fields in space and how they are responsible for shaping the Universe — everything from how they power the solar wind, to how they feed black holes and create galactic sculptures. You should be able to pick up the magazine in all good newsagents/bookstores early next week, as I’ve already seen it in a few places here in Bristol.
