My friend, the physicist and rock star and TV documentary host Brian Cox will be on "The Colbert Report" tonight, Wednesday October 28! I assume Brian'll be plugging his new book,
Why E= mc^2
, which I have read and is excellent (review coming soon). Brian is quite funny (as you may have noticed) and comfortable on television, so I suspect this will be quite a treat. And congrats for him being able to do something I have yet to achieve: goad Colbert into an invitation. I hold out hope: eventually he'll run out astronomers to interview, and he'll have to have me on the show. And that's the Wørd.
