A couple of weekends ago, I had the opportunity to take a look around the Museum of the History of Science in Oxford. There were lots of interesting exhibits but here are a few that caught my eye.
First, a blackboard. A smart scientist called Albert Einstein visited Oxford. During his lecture – he used this blackboard. I was really thrilled to see Einstein’s writing.
The formula? I’m not an expert, but I believe it shows the age of the Universe. The result of which holds up pretty well.
Here’s a beautiful Marconiphone receiver.
And a Marconi transmitter!
Look at this gorgeous morse key! A ‘grasshopper’ design. Never seen anything like it.
An excellent visit! Highly recommended if you’re in the Oxford area.
