Gallery 3, Episode 1 - Meeting Thirteen
Marcus Chown, the cosmology correspondent for New Scientist magazine donates the Omega Point to the museum, which is a possible theory on how the universe will end which also involves a more scientific explanation for the afterlife.
Comedian Shappi Khorsandi offers a comedian herself, in the form of Charlie Chaplin, a comic who inspired Khorsandi when at the age of 11 she saw his film The Great Dictator, in which Chaplin satirised Hitler and the Nazis.
Discworld author Sir Terry Pratchett offers the museum an idea from his novel Thief of Time. It is a machine called a "procrastinator" which is a device which banks any spare time we have so that we can use it later for when we need as much time as possible.
The full episode title is "Meeting Thirteen: The Omega Point, Charlie Chaplin & The Procrastinator".
