Friday night I had the privilege of going to The Motorpoint Arena Nottingham to see Professor Brian Cox present his Universal World Tour 2019, with special Guest Robin Ince.
Along with my brother David who has a keen interest in Astronomy and 7000 other enthusiasts I sat mesmerised listening to his lyrical, romantic approach to astrophysics. as he entertained the audience with his engaging presentation.
I have long been a fan of Mr Cox – an English Physicist who serves as a professor of particle physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester.
Probably best known to the public for his work as a science broadcaster and presenter of the popular BBC Wonders trilogy, Horizon and Stargazing Live.
His book Human Universe based on a BBC programme written with Andrew Cohen head of the BBC Science Unit and the Executive Producer of the BBC series takes pride of place on my bookshelf.
