Brian Cox on iPad

Brian Cox, physicist at CERN, and dubbed "The New Carl Sagan," is famous mostly from the popularity of his work for BBC.  In my opinion, it's the highest quality pop science in many years.  First was the series Wonders of the Solar System [wiki], which was successful enough for the sequel series, Wonders of the Universe [wiki.]
The latter has been made into an iPad app (5 pounds/7dollars.)  On the coattails of its release, a cheaper iPhone version will be coming.
Take a look.
