Me and my sister have a sort of name for it, random whiteboard of science. You see it all the time in the scifi/comic genre. As science/maths people it’s always fun to pause and see what random stuff the set designers have included this time. :)
it’s part hilarious and part depressing because apparently no one could put the effort into clicking 10 whole wikipedia pages instead of just throwing up whatever could be brainstormed in 2 minutes by a team of people who aren’t familiar with the subjects the characters are “supposed” to be dealing with
love the ‘random whiteboard science’ thing btw
Yeah, usually anything like that you see won’t really make any sense at all, just something to make the set look good made by people who are definitely not mathematicians or scientists. Just random!science or random!math, most people don’t even notice it. You tend to see it on whiteboards, hence the name :).
