Professor Brian Cox

What is “Horizons”?

Horizons is more than a show; it’s an odyssey. It has mesmerized over 250,000 people across three continents, weaving together a narrative of our cosmic origins and our potential future. Through state-of-the-art screen technology, audiences have been transported to distant galaxies, alien worlds, and the enigmatic heart of supermassive black holes. It’s a visual feast that sparks curiosity and wonder.
Themes Explored:

The Nature of Space and Time: Professor Cox delves into the fabric of the cosmos, exploring questions about the very essence of space and time.
Origins of Life: How did life emerge? How rare is it in the vast expanse of the Universe?
Our Cosmic Significance: Amidst the grandeur of the cosmos, what does it mean to be a small, finite part of an eternal Universe?

Critics have been effusive in their praise:
The Guardian: “A jaw-dropping reminder that human life is both irrelevant and hugely precious.”
Daily Echo: “Science and cosmology doesn’t get any more dazzling and interesting than this.”
Liverpool Echo: “Stunning.”
Express and Star: “We came away with a newfound love of the basics of science and math.”
