Professor Brian Cox Universal World Tour 2019: Live On Stage
June 8, 2019
The value of science. How we acquire scientific knowledge. Why we should trust it.
For the curious and those fascinated by science – Professor Brian Cox offers a fascinating insight into the workings of nature at the most fundamental level using state of the art graphics and imagery from ground-based telescopes and space probes.
“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.
– Professor Brian Cox
