Brian Cox's Wonders Of The Universe App

Whenever we're writing something about intergalactic demi-god Brain Cox, we're overly keen to remind you all of the time we invented the hashtag #BrianCoxKnowsEverything, and it went to number one in the UK. Remember? You don't do you. Big deal.

But today we're not here to talk about that. Unless you want to? No! Of course not. We're talking about the Brian Cox's Wonders Of The Universe app.

What on earth does it do? Well nothing on earth, goonbag. Prof. Cox deploys his enthusiasm, considerable learning and unfeasibly-white teeth to swoop through 3D galaxies, explore mind-bending infographics and unlock the secrets of the universe – while remaining indisposed to exertion. The production values would almost certainly be unfamiliar to his D:Ream compatriots…

Buy it cos it's ace. Or not. Just tell them the gang that made the hashtag sent you. No biggy.

£4.99, harpercollins.co.uk, Available from: iTunes here (iPad 2 and 3 only)
