Sat 22 Sep, Meres Leisure Centre gravity fields festival, talks, meres live
We are delighted to welcome Brian Cox to Grantham for an extremely special - one off talk for the Gravity Fields Festival! Brian's presentation features awe-inspiring images from the depths of the universe as well as his trademark infectious enthusiasm fro his subject. Alongside the story of life, the universe and everything, Brian argues that science can unite the world in an attempt to discover our shared origins and answer long-held mysteries. He also explains the work of CERN and their attempts to use cutting-edge technology and engineering to recreate event,s fractions of a nanosecond after the Big Bang, "in the hope of revealing the underlying simplicity of the universe."
Having broken records touring with Brian across the world and recorded the one hundredth episode of Rose D'Or award winning The Infinite Monkey Cage, Robin Ince teams up with Brian Cox again to display his less erudite grasp of quantum theory and thoughts on black holes. ‘The Ince brain is like a black hole in a galaxy of knowledge. When it collides with another black hole – say the Fringe – the energy waves that are produced are perceived, by us, as “shows”. **** The Scotsman
