Time Out says
Physicist and science communicator Brian Cox is heading to Melbourne as part of a world tour
Join British physicist Professor Brian Cox and his BBC Radio 4 co-host Robin Ince in a brand new live show hitting Melbourne.
Cox is known for making science a truly captivating topic without dumbing it down. He'll be appearing alongside comedian, actor and writer Ince. The duo currently co-host The Infinite Monkey Cage on BBC Radio 4, a witty, irreverent program that looks at the world through the eyes of science.
While no topic has been set for the upcoming Australia-wide tour next year, if Cox’s past tours (and the topics covered on The Infinite Monkey Cage) are anything to go by, we can expect a fun, whip-smart discussion on all things scientific.
Cox will use state-of-the-art graphics and imagery from telescopes on Earth and space probes to present reports from the latest space missions, as well as discussing the Big Bang, black holes and the origin and fate of life in the universe. He’ll also address questions about the value of science, how we acquire scientific knowledge and why we should trust it.
Brian Cox will be speaking at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre Tuesday June 25 2019. Tickets go on sale Tuesday October 22 2018.
