Professor Brian Cox on his new arena tour

Virgin Radio - Ricky Wilson

Professor Brian Cox joined the Chris Evans Breakfast Show to talk about his brand new arena tour: Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey.

Brian is touring the UK and Ireland until the 2nd October, and the show will see him use LED screen technology to take audiences on a cinematic journey, dealing with the nature of space and time, how life began, and what it means to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal universe. Speaking about the show, he said: “I’m not going to tell you the meaning of life, or the meaning of existence, because first of all, I don’t know, which is really important. Nobody does. And secondly, if I did know, I’d charge a lot more for tickets!”

Talking to Ricky Wilson, who is in this week for Chris, the physicist said: “The key to science is not only being comfortable with not knowing, but being excited about it. First of all you have to admit that you don’t know everything, and secondly, it’s like exploration. You have to go to the horizon, to the edge of knowledge, and look into the darkness, not with fear, but with excitement.”
