Simon Pegg & Brian Cox on BBC Night With the Stars

Simon Pegg Plays Physics Guinea Pig

In a recent episode of the BBC's A Night With the Stars, physicist Brian Cox (similar in reputation to Neil deGrasse Tyson, except British) enlisted the help of actor and geek we love, Simon Pegg, to explain the physics of why atoms are so vast yet empty.

Brian leads Simon and physicist Jim Al-Khalili in a giggly demonstration of standing wave principles in relation to the characteristics of atoms. We certainly could use these sorts of explanations in regards to the TARDIS in future Doctor Who episodes, don't you think?
