Holiday Collection 2012

The 2012 Science Inspiration was presented by Professor Brian Schmidt, joint winner of the 2011 Nobel Prize in Physics. Brian shares the accolade with two other scientists, having provided evidence that the expansion of the universe is accelerating.

As an award winning astrophysicist, Brian spends his time studying exploding stars, trying to understand the universe and how to make a good bottle of wine. All while fulfilling an array of public speaking engagements as one of Australia’s most famous scientists. No small task.

He told us how he fell in love with science as a child, his curiosity about the universe and how he spent his past year as a Nobel Prize winner.
