Fascination Astronomy Online offers half an hour of astronomy every Tuesday and Thursday at this place at 7 pm.
At the GEO600 gravitational wave detector near Hanover, Germany, parts of the instruments and methods were developed and tested with which the discovery of gravitational waves at the LIGO gravitational wave detectors in 2016 succeeded for the first time. Today, research on next-generation gravitational wave technologies continues there - and you can take a virtual look behind the scenes, come in!
