Professor Brian Cox has undertaken several sell-out live arena tours, breaking a number of Guinness World Records, including for the biggest selling science tour – a record he himself broke again with his most recent worldwide tour, Horizons, which has taken in venues in the UK, USA, Australia, New Zealand, Singapore, Hong Kong and now finally the Czech Republic.

Horizons has taken more than a quarter of a million people spanning three continents on a dazzling journey; a story of how humans came to be and what can they become. Using state of the art screen technology, venues across the world from New Zealand to the Arctic Circle have been filled with images of far-away galaxies, alien worlds, supermassive black holes and the latest theories of the origin of the Universe.

What is the nature of space and time? How did life begin, how rare might it be and what is the significance of life in the Cosmos? What does it mean to live a small, finite life in a vast, eternal Universe? Having travelled the world, it’s now time to bring Horizons to Prague for journey around the magnificent and baffling Universe.

The organizers say, "'Horizons – A 21st Century Space Odyssey' is a celebration of the civilisation, of music, art, philosophy and science; an optimistic vision of the future if people continue to explore Nature with humility and to value themselves and fellow human beings."

Professor Brian Cox said, “The Horizons Tour has grown beyond my wildest expectations. I started in January 2022 and since then I've talked about Black Holes, space and time and the origin and future of Life in the Universe to over a quarter of a million people and counting from the southernmost top of New Zealand to Northern Canada. I’m very excited about bringing Horizons to Europe to continue our 21st Century Space Odyssey.

The UK’s best known experimental physicist, Professor Brian Cox’s books and TV programmes have been read and watched around the world and credited with making science engaging and accessible to millions. With his down to earth enthusiasm, Brian is frequently labelled a ‘rock star scientist’. He is widely recognised as the foremost communicator for all things scientific, having presented a number of highly acclaimed science programmes for the BBC including The Universe (2021), The Planets (2018), Forces of Nature (2016), Human Universe (2014), Wonders of Life (2012), Wonders of the Universe (2011) and Wonders of the Solar System (2010). He also co-hosted popular astronomy and cosmology series Stargazing Live with Dara O’Briain (and for ABC in Australia, with Julia Zemiro) and award-winning BBC Radio 4 series Infinite Monkey Cage with Robin Ince, which has gone on to become one of the UK’s most popular podcasts.

As an author, Brian Cox has also sold over a million books worldwide including Black Holes, Universal: A Guide to the Cosmos, Quantum Universe and Why Does E=mc2? with co-author Professor Jeffrey Forshaw. He also wrote the series of books to accompany his popular television and radio programmes. Brian Cox is credited with boosting the popularity of subjects such as astronomy and physics and has garnered a host of accolades for his TV work, including two Royal Television Society awards and a Peabody Award for Wonders of the Solar System.
