    i have the option to be taught the theories of physics by him as part of a university course next term. Not sure if I should go for it though

    I do not experience the Brian Cox effect. I have seen him on the tele and he talks about interesting things but I don't think he himself has changed me. I watched something with Brian Cox, the lady I have the hots for from Coast, and Brian Blessed talking about people who make physics accessible (the Brian Cox effect I believe you are reffering to). They showed a clip of Carl Sagan, a man who previously I had only heard of, and I found him to make astrophysics more accessible than Brian Cox makes physics accessible. Perhaps that's just because I liked his voice. In fact that's probably why.

    I don't trust him tbh. So many complexities in physics I question his judgement too much to accurately convey it.

    The documentaries are fun, until you learn the maths and the abstract concepts lol.

    No; although the '**** head' effect has arguably been a mainstay of TSR for several years.

    He's not trying to make physics cool - he's trying to make people realise that physics is cool. There's a big difference. Brian Cox is a big factor in why university physics applications have gone up quite a lot in the last few years. I heard that in the department I studied physics at the number of applicants tripled in less than five years.

    Personally my interest in physics came before Brian Cox was so well known. I was influenced by the 'other' Brian, though - Brian Greene
