New maths gallery opens in December

A glamorous new maths gallery designed by the late Dame Zaha Hadid will be opening at the Science Museum. The gallery, named after David and Claudia Harding whose foundation made the gallery possible, looks at how maths has shaped the world over the last 400 years. More than 100 objects will look at the influence maths has had in shaping modern life, including money, trade, travel and war, starting with a 17th century Islamic astrolabe, a gizmo that uses mathematical techniques to map the night sky. Maths not your idea of fun? Take a maths geek and enjoy the La Hadid space. sciencemuseum
