World-renowned authority on astronomy to speak in Auckland next month.

Brian Cox

Using state of the art graphics and imagery from ground-based telescopes and space probes, presented using ultra-high-resolution LED screen technology, Brian will explore the latest missions to the planets, the nature of space and time from the Big Bang to black holes and the origin and fate of life and intelligence in the Universe. He will also address questions about the value of science, how we acquire scientific knowledge and why we should trust it.

 

Visual highlights will include a journey around and into a black hole, created in partnership with Double Negative, the four-time Academy Award-winning visual effects company responsible for creating the black hole effects in the movie Interstellar.

Professor Cox is scheduled to present his Auckland address on Saturday 15th June. The committee intends to investigate costs of the event and transport. Meanwhile please reply to this email to register your interest in attending the event. If suitable numbers register interest to make the proposition economically viable we shall prepare costs and publish the details. Please register your interest by 31st May.
