Professor Brian Cox is coming to Australia to blow your tiny mind


Using state of the art graphics and imagery from ground-based telescopes and space probes and presented using ultra-high-resolution LED screen technology, Brian Cox will explore the latest missions to the planets, the nature of space and time the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the universe.

The tour will also see him address questions about the value of science, how we acquire scientific knowledge and why we should trust it.

“We live at a pivotal time for our civilization,” said Cox. “We have access to an ever-increasing library of knowledge about nature and understand a great deal about the fundamental laws that govern our Universe. Science has extended and enriched our lives beyond imagination, and yet we are living through a time of great danger, with cynicism and suspicion of scientific knowledge on the rise.

“I believe very strongly that astronomy and cosmology deliver a vital perspective on our place in the Universe; we are at once tiny and fragile and yet filled with potential and value, and my ambition is for Universal to be an exploration of our knowledge and a celebration of our humanity.”    

Brian Cox is one of the preeminent physicists in the world and is Professor of Particle Physics at The University of Manchester, The Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science and a Fellow of the Royal Society. As a broadcaster, he has presented a number of highly acclaimed science programs for the BBC, boosting the popularity of subjects such as astronomy and physics and garnering a host of accolades.
