What is it?
The Cosmic Tourist is a Royal Society event taking place at the 2014 Hay Festival with Chris Lintott and Jon Culshaw.
We are surrounded by an astronomical zoo of familiar and curious objects, from asteroids and zodiacal dust to Alpha Centauri and the centre of the Milky Way. Chris Lintott discusses the many marvels of the cosmos with comedian and impressionist Jon Culshaw, and takes us on a tour of the universe.
Chris Lintott was one of the authors of The Cosmic Tourist, which was long-listed for the 2013 Royal Society Winton Prize for Science Books.
