Further details

Lucie Green, a physicist who specialises in the Sun donates an invisible coronal mass ejection. This is slightly worrying as a powerful one could destory the entire electronic infrastructure of the planet.

The comedian Harry Enfield gives the museum someone he has never come across: a stupid German. Give the huge number of the things they invented it is no surprise Enfield has yet to spot one.

Alan West, Baron West of Spithead, former First Sea Lord and head of the Royal Navy, provides the museum with something that powered the British Navy for well over a century, namely a tot of rum.
