Professor Brian Cox is probably the best-known physicist in the world today. As presenter of the hit TV series Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe, his affable charm and infectious enthusiasm has brought science to a whole new audience. Born in Lancashire in 1968, Cox did not excel at school; however he did flourish at university where he gained not only a first-class degree in Physics but an MPhil and a PhD. Alongside his studies as Manchester University he found time to play keyboards for the band D:Ream, and the band topped the charts in 1994 with 'Things Can Only Get Better', which was famously used by the Labour Party for its 1997 election campaign. Although Brian Cox has appeared in several television shows he is not just a celebrity presenter – he is also a Royal Society University Research Fellow, a professor at the University of Manchester and also works for the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at Cern in Switzerland. In 2010 he was awarded an OBE for his services to science. This is the first book on the award-winning television presenter and includes exclusive interviews.
