Rock Star Science

April 22, 2010

Science is important. Science can be fun. And most of all science is very interesting. If you, like me, always struggled in school to feel a genuine passion for physics, chemistry or maths it doesn’t mean all hope is lost. People like Professor Brian Cox, a particle physicist, Royal Society research fellow and professor at the University of Manchester, are therefore important to publicise science. As a frequent presenter for various BBC programs he does a great job, making science look accessible and interesting. . It’s important because he creates interest and can change preconceptions about what sort of people scientists are. Maybe it helps that he used to be in a band.

Here’s a short five minute interview with him in the science museum. And yes, he smiles a lot.
