Want to know the secrets of life, the universe and everything – in just one hour? Celebrated astrophysicist Marcus Chown is known for his exceptional ability to communicate big, complicated theories in quick and highly entertaining style. Author of many popular science books and recipient of the 2011 Future Book Award for his iPad app The Solar System, Chown says his test for whether he understands something is if he can explain it to someone waiting for a bus.
