6th July 2012 When Richard Branson, Found of Virgin Group Heartily endorses your iPad magazine alongside expressing the importance of the Higgs-Boson discovery you know you have created something special.  Congrats to Cosmos Media who’s new Cosmos Magazine iPad app has caught the billionaire’s attention on his recent blog post. Talk about bringing science to the masses, Sir Branson tweeted the following to his  2.2m followers “From #Higgsboson to @cosmosmagazine to @virgingalatic, who else is super excited by science right now?” The team at Oomph(Cosmos is powered by Oomph) have been beaming ever since, Oomph CEO Keith Ahern has offered Sir Branson a free subscription in exchange for a seat next to Stephen Hawkings on the first commercial intergalatic space journey.

Higgs boson to COSMOS

Incredible news about the discovery of the Higgs boson from the Cern scientists at the Large Hadron Collider. This really could prove to be an historic milestone for the world. Many people who would not profess an interest in science per se are being drawn in by these exciting new developments, from the Higgs boson to the creation of the first commercial spaceline, Virgin Galactic. There is plenty of fun to be had in the scientific world. Somebody who always keeps this in mind is Virgin Galactic astronaut-in-waiting Professor Stephen Hawking. He joked that the discovery has come at a high price: he had a bet with a fellow scientist that the particle wouldn’t be found, and has now lost £100! For those who are fascinated by science, I can heartily recommend the new COSMOS iPad magazine. It’s a beautifully designed read and covers everything from evolution to cutting edge new discoveries. The app itself is free, and there’s a free issue to download and try. Enjoy! By Richard Branson. Founder of Virgin Group Cosmos screens
