It appeared in the early morning of last Friday inside a locked exhibit among the dinosaurs of the Earth Sciences Museum in CEIT.
Every few minutes the blue roof light and the interior white lights pulsate in time with the machine’s signature “vworp vworp” sound.
Visitors to the museum (which happened to be hosting a big NSERC announcement that day) stopped to wonder about its origins and to take their photo beside the sci-fi icon.
The model is a full-sized replica of the spaceship from BBC’s Doctor Who. In the show, the main character uses the ship (disguised as a 1960s police box) to travel through time and space while exploring the universe.
To the best of our knowledge, it can still be seen there today.
[ Edit: It remained there for 3 days. ]
