Whistling neutron stars: relativistic phenomena at the Mannheim Planetarium

March 26, 2009
Anyone who has a computer with an Internet connection can now participate in the search for radio pulsars through Einstein@Home, an international project for the evaluation of scientific data, which has recently analysed the data of the radio telescope in Arecibo (Puerto Rico) and that searches for corresponding signals in this data. At the Mannheim Planetarium visitors can learn more about this project and the search for gravitational waves and radio pulsars up to the end of May 2009. [more]

Veranstaltungsankündigung: Viermal Einstein im November der Wissenschaft

November 11, 2008
In the context of the “November of Science” Dr. Peter Aufmuth will be explaining the background of the fascinating research at AEI that seeks to significantly expand our view of the world in the foreseeable future. He will take his guests on a miraculous journey where clocks run at slower and faster speeds, twins are suddenly not be the same age and the cosmos can be seen with new eyes, through the "light" of gravitational waves.
