At the same time as playing keyboard with rock band D:Ream, Brian Cox obtained a first class degree, Mphil and PhD in Physics from Manchester University. He is now Professor of Particle Physics at Manchester University and one of the leaders on the ATLAS experiment at the Large Hadron Collider at CERN in Geneva. Not content with that, he has also become a hugely popular TV presenter and author.

He has also fronted Space Hoppers, Stargazing, The Big Bang and numerous specials for Horizon. His book, “Why Does E=mc2?” (2009), quickly became a best-seller.
