Oor Big Braw Cosmos

  • Glasgow Science Centre 50 Pacific Quay Glasgow G51 1EA (map)

In their new book Oor Big Braw Cosmos, eminent Scots astronomer John Brown and poet Rab Wilson explore the beauty of the universe and its workings via a cocktail of science and science history from John, new poems from Rab, and numerous superb photo and art images, many from Scottish amateurs.

In this talk they will present intertwined science concepts, images and poetry readings, and discuss the pleasures and challenges they experienced in this cross-cultural project and the scientific, aesthetic, and entertaining insights which such sci-art ventures can bring to wide audiences.

Signed copies of the book will be available to buy after the talk. This talk is supported by the David Elder Bequest. Disabled access only can be booked by calling 0141 420 5000.

Tickets are £8 adults / £5.50 children and are available from the Glasgow Science Centre event page.
