Professor Brian Cox | Horizons

  • Share:
Name: Professor Brian Cox | Horizons
Date: May 12, 2022
Time: 7:00 PM - 10:00 PM CDT
Event Description:

World-renowned physicist Professor Brian Cox brings his immersive live experience, “Horizons: A 21st Century Space Odyssey,” to North America as part of his 2022 World Tour.

“Horizons” takes us on a dazzling cinematic journey, a story of how we came to be and what we can become.

The deepest of questions will be explored using the latest advances in our understanding of quantum theory, black holes, biology, planetary science, astronomy and cosmology. Using state-of-the-art LED screen technology, Capitol Theater will be filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and a time before the Big Bang.

What is the nature of space and time? Why does the universe exist? How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal universe?

“Horizons” is a celebration of our civilization, of our music, art, philosophy and science; an optimistic vision of our future if we continue to explore nature with humility and to value ourselves and our fellow human beings. Professor Cox will be joined by co-host of The Infinite Monkey Cage and award-winning comedian Robin Ince, perhaps the only collection of sentient atoms in the observable universe capable of overseeing a Q&A with an audience of 10,000 people while wearing an old cardigan.
