“BRIAN COX IS AS FAMOUS, IF NOT MORE FAMOUS, IN THE U.K. THAN CARL SAGAN EVER WAS HERE IN AMERICA. IF YOU’VE NEVER HEARD OF HIM, YOU’VE GOTTA KNOW ABOUT THIS GUY.”
— NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON
The Professor Brian Cox Universal world tour 2019 brings you images of the universe as you’ve never seen them before, displayed on massive, state-of-the-art, ultra-high-definition screens.
Brian will explore the nature of space and time. From the big bang to black holes, the latest missions to the planets and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the Universe, he offers a fascinating insight into the workings of nature at the most fundamental level.
Whether you are an avid science reader or a total novice, Universal makes the latest scientific discoveries and ideas accessible. Brian will be joined by his co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince to oversee an audience Q&A, giving fans the chance to ask any questions they have and making every show unique.
“If I had a torch I would hand it to Brian Cox” — Sir David Attenborough
A NOTE FROM BRIAN COX:
“On the last tour I loved talking about astronomy and cosmology in very large venues that usually only host rock bands. The great advantage was the ability to use vast, state of the art screens to display images of the cosmos as we’ve never seen them before. 30 meter-wide images from the Hubble Space Telescope are certainly something to behold. On this new tour, I’m going to go a step further with the technology, to the horror of my promoter because it’ll be bloody expensive. But it’ll be bloody spectacular as well, and I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the Universe.”
