Brian Cox as he isn’t usually seen

With his present high public profile, Professor Brian Cox (who tweets here) is probably more familiar in areas like this, explaining how Titan’s lakes were detected by Cassini in the Wonders of the Solar System program. However, as his title implies, he does actually work in academia, on projects relating to the Large Hadron Collider. His latest scientific paper is available for all to see (dealing with how the way in which the theoretical Higg’s boson – which provides mass if it exists – can have the strength of coupling to other particles measured by how they decay into other particles when exposed during a high energy collision in a particle accelerator), though it is perhaps not quite as accessible as the TV programs.

Of course, a little reediting of the Wonders of the Solar System has led to other ways to see another face of Brian Cox – like this.
