Now Lateral Events is bringing Professor Cox on a Universal World Tour 2019 and he is coming to Perth in June 2019. The event will be on 27th June from 7.30 pm to 10.30 pm. It will be held at the Perth Convention and Exhibition Centre, 21 Mounts Bay Road, Perth. Tickets cost from $131 and you can book your tickets at this link.
Brian is going to be exploring the latest missions to the planets amongst other things. He will be using state of the art graphics and imagery from ground-based telescopes and space probes. These will be presented using ultra-high-resolution LED screen technology.
He will also touch on 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 the subject of the value of science, how we acquire scientific knowledge and why we should trust this knowledge.
This will be a very interesting and exciting event with visual highlights including a journey around and into a black hole. This has been created in partnership with Double Negative, the four-time Academy Award-winning visual effects company who are responsible for creating the black hole effects in the movie Interstellar.
Universal will be making the latest scientific discoveries and ideas accessible regardless of whether you are an avid science reader or a total novice. They will be exploring the huge and possibly infinite universe from earth to the "edges of the cosmos". This should also confront 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 take care of the audience Q&A. This will give everyone a chance to ask any questions they may want to be answered.
Professor Brian Cox said "We live at a pivotal time for our civilisation. 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 is one of the preeminent physicists in the world and is Professor of Particle Physics, The Royal Society Professor for Public Engagement in Science and a Fellow of the Royal Society.
He has, as a broadcaster presented a number of highly acclaimed science programs for the BBC. He has boosted the popularity of subjects such as astronomy and physics and gathered a host of accolades including two Royal Television Society awards and a Peabody Award for Wonders of The Solar System.
Brian has also written a series of best-selling books including the widely popular Human Universe and most recently Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos. He is renowned as the foremost discourser for all things scientific. His critically acclaimed BBC series Forces of Nature aired in 2016 and he co-hosts Stargazing Live both in the UK and Australia.
