Living the life of Bri上海千花网e a defining science

To spend time with stadium cosmologist Brian Cox is to make human beings reconsider their status – although tiny an

d fragile and finite in this infinite universe – as ecstatic and random rock stars of the galaxy上海千花网品茶微信

There was a remarkable moment when physics professor and TV personality Bri

an Cox was visiting the British Consulate in Hong Kong to deliver a prom上海千花网

otional speech to journalists there. Ten minutes ahead of his talk, the cosmologist who had spent half his life loo

上海千花网king for evidence of the origins of creation as far back as four billion years ago, looks u

p at the projection screen and says there was too much light shining on him that he couldn’t see.

Is there a blind that can be lowered, he asks? No. “Okay, I’ll do my best, but you’ll just have to come to the show to see these ima上海千花网品茶微信

ges,” he jokes, with his mix of wild-eyed, disciplined-mind, boy wonder-esque persona. Cox is referring to his “

stadium cosmology” performance, the Professor Brian Cox Universal World Tour, wh上海千花网

ich landed in Hong Kong on June 5, and also visited Singapore, New Zealand and Australia.

上海千花网品茶微信In person, Cox burns like a comet, enlightening eyes and minds by the na

nosecond. He uses state-of-the-art graphics and imagery from telescopes and sp

ace probes in his show, with ultra-high-resolution LED technology helping explore the latest missions to planets, the na上海千花网

ture of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes, and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the unive

rse. He even “journeys” around and into a black hole. “On this new tour, I’m going a step further with technology,” he sa

上海千花网品茶微信ys. “And I hope it’ll offer people a completely new perspective on our place in the universe.”

A former pop star of the 1980s and ’90s, Cox is today a professor of particle physics at the University of Manchester.

He’s also an author, most recently of Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos (

with Jeff Forshaw), and a broadcaster, known for highly acclaimed BBC science p上海千花网品茶微信

rograms. Cox combines the best of David Attenborough, Carl Sagan and millen

nial thinking in his makeup. In an exclusive chat, we got to know the 51-year-old boy wonder of physics.
