Hello! Do you know where I can purchase the t-shirt with a scientific equation on the front, which Benedict is wearing in his Ice Bucket Challenge video?

Hi! Sadly we haven’t been able to identify it yet, only that the equation is (as many have already pointed out) for the Bekenstein-Hawking entropy of a black hole:
There also appears to be some kind of diagram on the back of the shirt - if there are any astrophysicists out there who can identify it, please get in touch!
Wait wait wait
So a couple hours after Benedict did the ice bucket challenge, I realised that ALS is also called motor neuron disease, which is the thing Stephen Hawking has. And Benedict has played Stephen Hawking. So his shirt was an oblique shout-out to Stephen Hawking? Damn this guy is clever.
so you’re telling me there’s an alien who regenerates into a completely random form, that he cannot control or determine himself, and who understandably could take millions of different appearances, but who all 13 times just turned into a different skinny white guy
Took me a while to get the reference.
