Exploring the Energy Revolution: A New Gallery at the Science Museum Takes Shape

A new exhibition showcasing cutting-edge energy technology debuts

The Science Museum has recently opened a new gallery called Energy Revolution: The Adani Green Energy Gallery, which is dedicated to exploring the past, present, and future of energy and how it can help limit climate change. The centerpiece of the gallery is a moving sculpture called Only Breath, which measures 5m wide when unfolded. Additionally, part of the Zero Energy Thermonuclear Assembly (ZETA), a nuclear fusion experiment from the late 1950s, is on display for the first time.

The gallery is divided into three zones: Future Planet, which showcases computer-based models to predict future climate; Future Energy, which explores current energy supply and potential future innovations; and Our Future, which highlights creative ideas from children about meeting future energy needs. Visitors can also see exhibits on Hydrogen, Wind, and Tidal Energy.

Ian Blatchford, the director of the Science Museum Group, stated that the gallery aims to spark curiosity and important conversations about sustainable energy. He emphasized the need for the world to generate and use energy more sustainably. The gallery features contributions from artists and many others involved in acquiring and transporting objects for display.

Visitors will be inspired by this unique exhibit that encourages them to think about the urgent need for sustainable energy solutions.
