A few photos from my trip to the Alan Turing exhibition at the Science Museum yesterday.

For those who like to read around Benedict’s film roles this would be a fantastic exhibition to visit before The Imitation Game starts filming. It deals not only with Turing’s work at Bletchley Park building the “bombe” super computer which enabled the allies to break the Enigma code settings on a daily basis but also his work in computer science and how vital it was to much of what we use today and his theories of morphogenesis. 

Do play with all the video screens - lots of information and audio clips in them - all fascinating stuff. 

The exhibition (and indeed the museum) are free to enter although do consider donating a couple of quid. 

A really informative and quietly moving exhibition.

One of the signs at the exhibition said it best “Turing’s work remains as a painful reminder of the loss that science has suffered”.
