          Brian Cox is a phenomenon. He is the UK’s, and perhaps the world’s, foremost communicator of all things scientific. His television programs are ground breaking – Cox has the innate ability to make highly complex matters enormously entertaining and easy to contemplate. He is also a former rock star from the hit band D:Ream, who scored a UK number 1 hit in 1994 with the song 'Things Can Only Get Better'. Live events conducted by Brian Cox are a wonderment of an entirely new genre - his experiments, audience interactivity, stunning visuals and totally engaging manner leaves audiences enraptured, engaged, informed and occasionally besotted by him. Brian Cox OBE is the “real deal” - a British partial physicist, a Royal Society University Research fellow. He works on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN, Switzerland and is a Professor at the University of Manchester. He is best known to the public as the presenter of a number of science programs for the BBC, boosting the popularity of subjects such as astronomy and physics. He has been described as the natural successor for BBC's scientific programming by both David Attenborough and the late Patrick Moore. Brian Cox will be touring his show "An Evening of Scientific Phenomena" throughout Australia in August 2013. For more information visit www.briancoxaustralia.com.au.
