Professor Brian Cox has been credited in the UK with rejuvenating interest in physics among school pupils. The entertaining and smart scientist and television presenter is now taking his knowledge on tour with his Universal World Tour. He’ll be in New Zealand in June to bring the universe to life in front of audiences. He’s using state of the art graphics and images from telescopes and space probes to explain the science behind our existence. He speaks to Jim about taking people on a journey into a black hole and how he’s hoping, now, more than ever to get the point across about trusting scientific knowledge.
