The best Brian Cox tweets


Last night, along with every other BBC1 watching Brit, we were in awe of the intimidatingly knowledgeable physicist Brian Cox. His show Brian Cox's Wonders of the Universe proved that there is probably nothing that he doesn't know.

The ex-D:Ream member (FACT) showed his brain to be big enough for us to start the hashtag #briancoxknowseverything which soon spiralled out of control and trended, with a huge amount of you giving us your finest insights into Cox's mind.

We have assembled the very best for you to gawp at:

@squigmig: Professor Brian Cox knows it's not butter, and has an equation to prove it. #briancoxknowseverything
