Everyone loves Brian Cox, right? Well, if you don’t probably best to stop reading now.
Not only does he have a very big brain, he’s also very good on Twitter (not two things that always go together).
And here are 15 times when he was very good indeed. Sometimes political, occasionally ecological, mostly just funny.
I do not see how this can be accurate. If you tried to fit an infinite amount of information into the restaurant it would collapse to form a black hole. pic.twitter.com/AWW5PoF6Ze

Wait until he hears that the second is defined as the duration of 9 192 631 770 periods of the radiation corresponding to the transition between the two hyperfine levels of the ground state of the caesium 133 atom! https://t.co/EFhnjQdYcg

Twin cassette decks in my hotel room. I’ve carried my TDK-AD90 mix tapes recorded off the top 40 countdown throughout the 1980s with me for over a decade for just this eventuality. pic.twitter.com/LmfGutjKB8

This may be the first time I’ve agreed with Jeremy Hunt on a technical matter. Star formation rates in the Milky Way are declining and, on longer timescales, we do appear to live in a de Sitter Universe due to the non-zero cosmological constant. https://t.co/9w9DXD873x

I have a genuine question for any flat earthy-person in the northern hemisphere who still follows me – what is the flat-earthy-person explanation for the fact I’m standing in autumn? pic.twitter.com/8iEhnfiaeW

The great achievements of our civilisation are so precious and so fragile and we take them for granted until they vanish in a single spring evening. I have a powerful sense of the precarious nature of existence tonight.

Someone’s come to fix our dishwasher and I’m such a geek I’m sitting in the kitchen asking lots of detailed questions about its diagnostic modes.

Sorry to tweet about politics – I’m trying not to – but I look at the news in the morning and I’m sickened by what has happened to our country. It’s a great place, about to be ruined by absolute charlatans.

If you mean the Hot Big Bang then there may have been a period of rapid expansion before known as inflation. This theory is able to account for observed features of the universe, including the CMB power spectrum and the flatness and horizon problems.

No experiment can tell us whether we are moving. The speed of light is a universal constant. Things fall at the same rate under gravity. There are atoms and they emit light of particular colours. The nucleus of an atom sometimes decays into a different element. That’s it really. https://t.co/xWu5Bf1vmu

And while we’re here, this Brian Cox parody is very old but it is also very, very funny.
