BRIAN COX 2016

LIVE ON STAGE

BRIAN COX_345x454pxProfessor Brian Cox has accepted Lateral Event’s invitation to tour Australia in August, presenting an all new live stage show entitled Professor Brian Cox – A Journey into Deep Space.

Join Professor Brian Cox as he shares what we know and explores some of the great unanswered questions about our Universe. Are we alone in the universe? Will we ever know what happened before the Big Bang? What is the nature of the 95% of the Universe we know to be missing? What was the origin of Life on Earth?

“We’ve detected gravitational waves from colliding black holes and seen Higgs Particles at the Large Hadron Collider, says Brian Cox. We’ve discovered that the universe is accelerating in its expansion for unknown reasons, and we even have credible theories that seek to answer one of the eternal questions: ‘What happened before the Big Bang?’

We know vastly more about the universe at a fundamental level than we did a decade ago, and the universe is turning out to be stranger and more fascinating than we could have imagined. In this tour I will describe these recent discoveries, and discuss what they mean for our understanding of the universe, its origin and evolution.

But I also want to discuss how we could possibly know such things. What does it mean to make a scientific statement? How do we know the age of the Earth, the Sun and the Universe?  And how sure can we be of things that happened when our observable universe was way smaller than a single atom, 13.8 billion years ago?”

Delving into the most recent scientific research from CERN and the great astronomical observatories of the world, Professor Brian Cox is always captivating, continually surprising and forever pushing the boundaries.

Brian Cox is one of the world’s foremost communicator of all things scientific. His innate ability to make highly complex matters entertaining and easy to contemplate, has made his science television shows ground breaking in their audience reach and accessibility.

Joining Brian on stage will be British comedian, actor and writer Robin Ince, Brian’s co-host on the BBC Radio 4’s The Infinite Monkey Cage.

Brian Cox OBE is a British particle physicist at the University of Manchester and Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science. He has carried out research at the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland and the H1 experiment at DESY in Hamburg. He is best known to the public as the presenter of a number of science programs for the BBC, boosting the popularity of astronomy, physics and exploration.
