A new museum exhibit hopes to uncover the secrets behind the legendary physicist’s doodles, jokes and coded messages on a blackboard. Stephen Hawking maintained for more than 35 years.

The blackboard dates back to 1980, when Hawking joined fellow physicists at a conference on superspace and supergravity at the University of Cambridge in the UK. Guardians. While trying to come up with a cosmography “theory of things” – a set of equations that will incorporate the rules of general relativity and quantum mechanics – Hawking’s colleagues used the blackboard as a welcome distraction, filling it with a jumble of finished equations, cryptic puns, and tricky scribbles. understand.
