Q tour: PRO­FES­SOR BRIAN COX

Q Magazine - - Q Tour -

Lat­eral Events is pleased to an­nounce Prof Brian Cox’s first world tour Pro­fes­sor Brian Cox Uni­ver­sal World Tour 2019: Live On Stage will land in Hong Kong, Sin­ga­pore, New Zealand and Aus­tralia in June 2019. For the first time, Prof Brian Cox will be em­bark­ing on a World Tour, vis­it­ing North Amer­ica, UK, Europe, Asia and the Asia Pa­cific.

Us­ing state of the art graph­ics and im­agery from ground-based tele­scopes and space probes, pre­sented us­ing ul­tra-high-res­o­lu­tion LED screen tech­nol­ogy, Brian will ex­plore the lat­est mis­sions to the plan­ets, the na­ture of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes and the ori­gin and fate of life and in­tel­li­gence in the Uni­verse. He will also ad­dress ques­tions about the value of science, how we ac­quire sci­en­tific knowl­edge and why we should trust it.

Whether an avid science reader or a to­tal novice, Uni­ver­sal will make the lat­est sci­en­tific dis­cov­er­ies and ideas ac­ces­si­ble to all, ex­plor­ing the vast, pos­si­bly in­fi­nite uni­verse from earth to the edges of the cos­mos; it will also chal­lenge the au­di­ence to think about our value as hu­man be­ings and our place amongst the stars.

Brian will be joined by 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.

“We live at a piv­otal time for our civ­i­liza­tion,” said Brian. “We have ac­cess to an ever-in­creas­ing li­brary of knowl­edge about na­ture and un­der­stand a great deal about the fun­da­men­tal laws that gov­ern our Uni­verse. Science has ex­tended and en­riched our lives be­yond imag­i­na­tion, and yet we are liv­ing through a time of great dan­ger, with cyn­i­cism and sus­pi­cion of sci­en­tific knowl­edge on the rise. I be­lieve very strongly that astron­omy and cos­mol­ogy de­liver a vi­tal per­spec­tive on our place in the Uni­verse; we are at once tiny and frag­ile and yet filled with po­ten­tial and value, and my am­bi­tion is for Uni­ver­sal to be an ex­plo­ration of our knowl­edge and a cel­e­bra­tion of our hu­man­ity.”

Brian Cox is one of the pre­em­i­nent physi­cists in the world and is Pro­fes­sor of Par­ti­cle Physics at The Uni­ver­sity of Manch­ester, The Royal So­ci­ety Pro­fes­sor for Pub­lic En­gage­ment in Science and a Fel­low of the Royal So­ci­ety. As a broad­caster, he has pre­sented a num­ber of highly ac­claimed science pro­grams for the BBC, boost­ing the pop­u­lar­ity of sub­jects such as astron­omy and physics and gar­ner­ing a host of ac­co­lades, in­clud­ing two Royal Tele­vi­sion So­ci­ety awards and a Pe­abody Award for Won­ders of The So­lar Sys­tem. He has also au­thored a se­ries of best-sell­ing books, in­clud­ing the widely ac­claimed Hu­man Uni­verse and most re­cently, Uni­ver­sal: A Guide to the Cos­mos, and is recog­nised as the fore­most com­mu­ni­ca­tor for all things sci­en­tific. His crit­i­cally ac­claimed BBC se­ries Forces of Na­ture aired in 2016 and he co-hosts Stargaz­ing Live in the UK and Aus­tralia.
