Unknown Pleasures

Thank you to everyone who voted for Jocelyn Bell Burnell’s discovery of pulsars in the Great British Innovation vote. She came #4. Amazing! Several weeks ago Roger Highfield from the London Science Museum got in touch with me to ask if I’d like to take part in the Great British Innovation vote. He sent me […]

Hello

brian1

I’ve been getting a ton of hits here this week because Brian’s Wonders of the Universe starts tonight. I don’t really blog much anymore because I’m far too busy with life. I’m on Twitter, so is Brian, though my Twitter is far more interesting than his. For example, his last tweet was about how he’s […]

Professor Brian Cox Wonders of the Solar System

brian_solarsystem1

‘Wonders of the Solar System’ started today in the US on the Science Channel. As my blog inevitably gets quite a lot of traffic after Brian’s been on TV, I thought I’d put up some extra photos and information. Brian’s Twitter Facebook group Website Twitpic (where you can see photos from the filming of both […]

Ada Lovelace Day 2010

This Ada Lovelace Day post was actually written a few years ago when I was trying to get a documentary about the following woman commissioned. These are the ‘notes’ I wrote about her as reference for the proposal. It’s not written with flair (I’m full-time mummying a 10 month old at the moment!), but the […]

Ada Lovelace Day

It says: “I will publish a blog post on Tuesday 24th March about a woman in technology whom I admire but only if 1,000 other […]

Last year I did a run-down of my year and thought I’d do the same again this year.

Brian on Harry Hill

In case you haven’t seen it, here’s Brian on Harry Hill’s TV Burp. :)

Horizon on iPlayer

If you missed Brian’s Horizon ‘Do You Know What Time It Is?’ last night, and you are in the UK, it’s available on the BBC’s iPlayer.

Brian Cox- Horizon- Do You Know What Time It Is?

BBC 2, 9pm, tonight. Brian’s Horizon on Time tonight is brilliant. Honestly. I watched it a couple months ago and even though I knew what was in it, there was one point at which I actually got a kind of vertigo. Brian talks to mathematical physicist Neil Turok about the idea that the Universe has […]

Brian Cox- Horizon What Time Is It?

The teaser for Brian’s new Horizon is out. Remember: Horizon, December 2, BBC2, 9pm. More here.
