- Tue Jun 25 2019
- From $182
This one's for the real science nuts! Using state of the art graphics and imagery from ground-based telescopes and space probes, presented using ultra-high-resolution LED screen technology, physicist Professor Brian Cox 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. It will be the most stunning visual journey into what we know about the universe so far.
Professor Cox will also address questions about the value of science, how we acquire scientific knowledge and why we should trust it.
Visual highlights will include a journey around and into a black hole, created in partnership with Double Negative, the four-time Academy Award-winning visual effects company responsible for creating the black hole effects in the movie Interstellar.
Whether an avid science reader or a total novice, UNIVERSAL will make the latest scientific discoveries and ideas accessible, 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.
