The new exposition in the London Museum of science, named the “Era of information”, is dedicated to six types of communication that changed the world and lead the mankind to the information-oriented society: telegraph, analogue telephony, radio and TV broadcasting, satellites, computers and mobile telephones.

The 5-meter dummy of the Russian Shukhov tower, built in 1922, is one of the brightest exhibits at the exhibition. The hyperboloid lattice tower of the brilliant engineer and architect academician Vladimir Shukhov is considered by the international experts as one of the highest achievements of engineering and it ranks among seven architectural masterpieces of the Russian avant-garde recommended for inclusion in the list of UNESCO world heritage.
