Taking us on thrilling journey through the laws of the universe, he brings to life what physics reveals about the nature of reality. What is the cutting edge of what we know? What are the speculative theories that may become scientific fact in the future?

Jim Al-Khalili is renowned for his ability to make the principles and stories of science easily understandable. From the physics of the cosmos to the physics of everyday life, he will bring us up to speed – uncovering what the biggest ideas mean and why they matter. What are the discoveries that lie ahead?
