Darwin's cocoon

Awwh, this was so cool.

Quote from News24:

London's Natural History Museum on Tuesday unveiled an eight-storey extension in the shape of a cocoon to house the collections of Charles Darwin ...

The $129m building houses 17 million insect specimens and three million plant specimens as well as a Climate Change Wall of screens showing the impact of global warming.

I am glad UK is a bit more sensible about science and topics related to evolution than its other friends.
