It has been officially announced that the popular BBC Stargazing Live TV show will be on our screens once again on the 28th, 29th and 30th March 2017. This year the team will be broadcasting live from Australia.
Professor Brian Cox and Dara O Briain are taken from London to the other side of the world for an astonishing stargazing experience in the Australian Outback.
The duo will spend three nights with more than 40 telescopes on a mountain in the heart of Australia, home to the Siding Spring Observatory, which delivers the world’s best view of our galaxy.
Cox and O Briain will share stories of Aboriginal astronomy, the meteorite bounty-hunters searching for space rocks in the Australian bush and debate the threat of the black hole that could one day consume our galaxy, all under the spectacular view of the Milky Way at its most revealing time in March.
The Australian outback is the perfect setting for discussions of the universe, earth-like planets and why everything looks upside down, down under.
