Cox and Ince at AstroFest

Cox and Ince at AstroFest 2013

Brian Cox and Robin Ince bring their irreverent blend of wit and science to AstroFest. Live on stage, they will ponder the meaning of parallel universes, quantum physics, the anthropic principle and no doubt much more. Warning: contains jokes of a scientific nature.
