A new exhibition hopes to reveal the secrets, jokes and secret messages of the doodles of the late physicist Stephen Hawking on the famous blackboard.

The history of the tablet dates back to 1980, when Hawking joined fellow physicists at a conference on hyperspace and supergravity at the University of Cambridge in the UK, the Guardian reported.

A collection of equations connecting the laws of general relativity and quantum mechanics – the “universal theory of everything” – Hawking’s colleagues used the board as a welcome distraction and filled it with the confusion of semi-finished equations. And mysterious doodles. “

The chaotic slate is still preserved for 40 years and first appeared in public as the centerpiece of a new exhibition that opened in the Hawking Office on February 10 at the Science Museum in London.

The museum welcomes physicists and friends of Hawking, who died in 2018 at the age of 76 – from around the world in the hope that they will be able to understand some of the handwritten doodles.

Here is a sample of the puzzles on the board: Why does the pass with the flexible nose climb over the brick wall? What’s hidden inside Exxon’s so-called “Super Gravity” tin can?

His 1966 Ph.D., dissertation on the expansion of the universe, his wheelchair and dozens of Hawking artifacts, including the character jacket presented to him by the creators of “The Simpsons”, are on display. Respect for his multiple appearances on the show. The exhibition, which runs until June 12 at the Science Museum in London, will travel to several museums in the UK.
