Professor Brian Cox demonstrates why atoms are empty

Did you watch "A Night With The Stars" on BBC2 last night?

Professor Brian Cox lectured a celebrity audience about some of the most challenging concepts in physics from the lecture theatre of the Royal Institution of Great Britain.

Here's a clip from the show:
The comedian Simon Pegg and physicist Jim Al-Khalili help him explain standing waves in a demonstration to show why atoms are so large and empty.




It was a brilliant show! If you missed it, be sure to catch in on iPlayer.

  1. I enjoyed it, although much of it was most confusing.
    I have reservations about the so-called 'celebrity' audience, and wished that it was ordinary folk instead. Flighty xx

  2. I had a hard time understanding a lot of it too.

    I'm not sure why they felt it was necessary to have a celebrity audience. I think the celebrities were more of a distraction. The focus should have been on the science, and an ordinary audience would have been much better.
