Professor Brian Cox returns with a four-part series exploring how the underlying forces of nature
shape the world around us. In this week’s opening episode, the beautifully titled The Universe in a Snowflake, Brian explains how the remarkably intricate structure of a six-cornered snowflake
can tell us so much about the myriad shapes to be found in the natural world. Meanwhile,
awe-inspiring human towers in Spain reveal how tightly packed people create strength, and Brian explains how busy bees in Nepal are actually master architects as they use mathematical
rules to create their hexagonal hives. Fascinating!
