Explore the fascinating subject of Second World War technological advances as the Science Museum takes you to meet Churchill’s Scientists. This event is just one of the many marking 50 years since Winston Churchill’s death. This exhibition portrays the great Prime Minister through his involvment in cutting-edge inventions and scientific developments. It could be argued that his interest in such matters greatly helped Britain to win the war, with everything from the invention of the radar to the production of penicillin and antibiotics saving countless lives. A highlight of the exhibition is the examples of Britain’s top secret research into the development of the first atomic bomb. Many of the projects initiated by Churchill during the war didn’t flourish until sometime after, but those that did – such as molecular genetics, radio astronomy, robotics and nuclear power – have shaped the world around us. There are also some of Churchill’s personal possessions, including his green velvet siren suit and the cigar he smoked on winning the election in 1951.
