Aurora – In search of the Northern Lights

Melanie Windbridge has put together a wonderful tome describing her search for the perfect aurora. A plasma physicist by trade, Windbridge is Business Development Manager for the fusion start-up Tokamak Energy, and believes that science and exploration go hand in hand. In Aurora, Windridge explores the visual beauty, the ancient myths and legends, and, of course, … Continue reading "Aur
