Illuminating IndiaThis autumn, the Science Museum celebrates India's contribution to science, technology and mathematics with its special Illuminating India season. The season brings together a series of events, including two free major exhibitions: 5000 Years of Science and Innovation and Photography 1857-2017. The former takes a journey through India's remarkable history, revealing how the Mughal emperors conserved nature in the 16th century, how 20th century mathematical genius Srinivasa Ramanujan revolutionised maths and how the Indian Space Research Organisation sent a camera to Mars for less than the cost of the film Gravity. The latter exhibition provides an ambitious survey of the technological and artistic development of photography in India, showing how the Indians used it to express their unique experiences. Further events in the series include an Indian tea blending workshop, a Slumdog Millionaire screening with a Q&A with director Danny Boyle, and two intimate evenings of dance and live music with the world-renowned Nrityagram Dance Ensemble.
