English physicist Brian Cox serves as a professor of particle physics in the School of Physics and Astronomy at the University of Manchester. He is known as the presenter of the “Wonders of …” series, but also for popular science books “Why does E=mc2?”

Brian has also been the co-author of more than 950 scientific publications. He is the natural successor for BBC’s scientific programing, and in this episode, he explores the universe.

Part of the “Wonders of …” series, in this episode we see Brian ask and try to answer questions like who are we, where do we come from and similar philosophic and scientific questions.

Humanity has turned to myth and religion for years to these questions. However, there is a scientific answer to them as well. Brian tries to show the answers provided by science by exploring the cycles of time which define our experience of life on Earth.
