Summary
In this episode, Prof. Brian Cox travels around Australia to explore the physics of the size of life. He explores the largest flowering plant- the Mountain Ash, takes to the seas to get up-close with a great white shark, tracks the largest living marsupial (a the red kangaroo) in the outback, examines the insects of Queensland's rainforests, scrutinizes trichogramma in the Glass House Mountains, studies thrombolites near Perth, inspects the tiny Southern Bent-wing bat of South Australia, and explores a theory about metabolism and life expectancy on Christmas Island
