Space scientists Dr Luke Barnard and Professor Mat Owens created a numerical model of the solar wind and published the code Open Source in order to facilitate its use by researchers and space weather forecasters. Within a year of its publication they have established new international collaborations and begun to develop the model as an operational forecast tool for the UK Met Office. Dr Barnard and Professor Owens were finalists in the University of Reading Open Research Award 2021.
