Professor Brian Cox And The Struggles of Science:Students and Scientists Have Silverlining
People would rather choose entertainment over education. Most of them even believe that the math and science lessons they learned in school can't be applied in real life. However, Professor Brian Cox, in his new book "Universal: A Guide To The Cosmos," discusses how to use scientific methods in everyday life.
Professor Brian Cox said it is important for people to understand that there is a way to arrive at such high-precision about nature, IFL Science reported. He said he would like to add the topic of inflation in his book had he written it 50 years in the future. He would like to determine whether eternal inflation is correct. This would prove that there is an infinite number of universes and that there is life beyond earth.
He thinks that dark energy and its nature is the biggest unanswered question in the field of astronomy right now. He believes that the universe is expanding at an accelerating rate, and he would like to determine the truth to this theory. Another big question is what causes that expansion.
He said that Mars would be the best place for life beyond Earth. He said there is a substantial amount of surface water in the Red Planet. He believes that the first project to reach Mars would be collaboration between Elon Musk's SpaceX and NASA.
Professor Brian Edward Cox is known for his best-selling books "Why Does E=mc²?" and "The Quantum Universe." He is an English physicist, and works as a professor of particle physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester. In his new book "Universal: A Guide To The Cosmos," he believes that science is headed to a brighter future even if there are a lot of people who negate important claims like climate change and even the fact that the world is flat.
In another lighter and more entertaining note, Professor Brian Cox appears this week on Cbeebies carton show, BBC reported. He will be featured as Ted Glen's space expert friend, Professor Ryan Farrow. The show "Postman Pat and the Space Suit" airs Wednesday.
