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 [...]
‘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 [...]
Last year I did a run-down of my year and thought I’d do the same again this year.
In case you haven’t seen it, here’s Brian on Harry Hill’s TV Burp. :)
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.
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 [...]
The teaser for Brian’s new Horizon is out. Remember: Horizon, December 2, BBC2, 9pm. More here.
Phew! I can finally say something about this. Brian was up for Dawkins’ job, down to the final three (or was it four?!), but didn’t get it. And the winner is…
I was looking for a photo of me on Flickr and stumbled across these pics of Brian and me at SciFoo. Brian Me Brian Me
There have been many times over the years when I’ve been extremely proud of my lovely husband. His appearance on Newsnight the other night is right at the bloody top of the list. Delight with me in the massive smackdown he gives to Sir David King who, believe it or not, is the President of [...]
Anyone following the CERN switch-on in the media may have seen the article in the Telegraph this week about how some physicists have been getting death threats. Brian was quoted as saying, “Anyone who thinks the LHC will destroy the world is a twat.” As of this writing, teh interwebs is alight with conversations about [...]
The director of Horizon, Paul Olding, has put up more behind-the-scenes clips from the new one on Time. Why should we want to understand Time? How the minus sign protects the past from the future. On Life in the Universe. Loads more here.
Some more videos from behind-the-scenes on Brian’s new Horizon on Time are up on YouTube. The documentary explores the idea of Time – what we think it is, what it isn’t and asks ‘does it exist at all?’ He talks to all kinds of people from the Director of the US Naval Observatory which keeps [...]
On the 23rd of August at UCLA Royce Hall, Brian is taking part in the orchestral symphony by Mike Einziger: “Simply stated, end vacuum is a jagged collection of orchestral music Michael Einziger has been writing for the past year. A horrendously turbulent, and at times serene, aural interpretation of complex patterns and geometric shapes [...]
TX: December 2, BBC2, 9pm *UPDATE* 16/11/08 The teaser is out. NOTE: UPDATES TO THE POST ARE BELOW Brian is off filming a new Horizon at the moment. His last one about Gravity was rather popular (thanks for watching, everyone!) and was very well received indeed. They asked him if he’d do another one. This [...]
OK, well, not quite. Firstly, because I am a foreign national in the UK and can’t vote. Secondly, because I’m a Democrat (American, like), I still equate ‘rightwing’ with ‘neocon’ and it makes me fume and get all angry and want to argue with Bush-loving Fundamentalist Christian Military Housewives. Saying that… Brian and I just [...]
