By Professor Brian Cox and Andrew Cohen

Travel with Professor Brian Cox through a 3D Universe, scaling up from sub atomic particles through the solar system and Milky Way, local Stars and Galaxies to the edge of the known Universe.

The groundbreaking Wonders app for iPad brings together Professor Brian Cox’s Wonders of the Solar System and Wonders of the Universe books with the award-winning TV series produced by the BBC into a single interactive experience.

Take a solo voyage, jetting between planets, moons, asteroids, nebulae and black holes, or take one of Brian’s tours for a curated journey of the Wonders that surround us.

As you travel through space, watch over two-and-a-half hours of BBC video, view hundreds of beautiful galactic photos, dabble with animated info-graphics and read the story of the Universe told in Professor Cox’s accessible style.

The app is as spectacular as the universe it unlocks, but also profoundly educational. It can be enjoyed on a purely superficial level – marvel at a Red Giant; gaze upon the beauty of the Lagoon Nebula – or fully immerse yourself in the related video and text to understand where we came from, how we got here and where we’re going as the destiny of the Universe plays out.

As such, the app appeals to adults, teens and young children alike – anyone who wants to understand the forces that shaped the world we live in and our part in a wider universe.
