Science Museum Launches Stunning New Gallery on Energy Revolution and Climate Change Mitigation

A new exhibition showcasing cutting-edge energy technology debuts

The Science Museum has recently unveiled its new gallery, Energy Revolution: The Adani Green Energy Gallery. This innovative space is dedicated to exploring the past, present, and future of energy and its potential in mitigating climate change. At the heart of the gallery is a stunning 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 examines computer-based models predicting future climate changes; Future Energy, which delves into current energy sources and potential future innovations; and Our Future, which highlights creative ideas from children about meeting future energy needs. Visitors can also explore exhibits on Hydrogen, Wind, and Tidal Energy.

Ian Blatchford, Director of the Science Museum Group, emphasized the importance of generating and using energy more sustainably. He believes that the gallery will spark curiosity and initiate important conversations about sustainable energy solutions. The gallery features contributions from artists and many others involved in acquiring and transporting objects for display.

Visitors will find an inspiring experience at this gallery as they contemplate the urgent need for sustainable energy solutions.
