Wayne Coyne in Conversation with Tim O'Brien

A meeting of great music and science minds as Flaming Lips frontman Wayne Coyne was In Conversation with Professor Tim O’Brien, Associate Director Jodrell Bank Centre for Astrophysics, and avid explorer of exploding stars.

The Flaming Lips headlined the first major music event at Jodrell Bank back in 2011. Wayne was given a personal tour of the Control Room before performing a landmark show beneath the iconic Lovell Telescope, declaring it was “the greatest place to be on Planet Earth”. During the tour, Tim and Wayne discussed our understanding of the Universe, the search for extra-terrestrial life, and the possibility of alternative dimensions. This coming together of the worlds of music, space exploration and creativity is what now lies at the heart of the bluedot festival.

These key themes and more were explored at this exclusive In Conversation. This and the return of The Flaming Lips was a momentous occasion in the bluedot cosmos.
