Public talk “Gravitationswellen – ein neues Fenster ins Universum” (in German)

Public talk
Since the first direct detection of gravitational waves in 2015, our knowledge of the universe has been enriched by a completely new window of observation – we can now not only observe the universe by means of electromagnetic telescopes and neutrino detectors, but also “eavesdrop” on it with interferometric gravitational-wave detectors.

Public talk (in German) “Vom Universum in die Lausitz – Faszination Astrophysik für alle”

Public talk
Prof. Michèle Heurs (Leibniz Universität Hannover) presents the ideas of the DZA as a national center with international visibility, driving resource-saving digitalization, developing new technologies, transfer to industry and creating new perspectives - firmly rooted in Lusatia. [more]

Public talk (in German) “Deutsches Zentrum für Astrophysik – Warum in der Lausitz?”

Public talk
Astronomy has always shaped our understanding of the world and of life on Earth. It was and is the driver of progress. Astrophysics today is a high-tech science with great innovative power. It faces major challenges in data processing, computing, and technology development – with much potential for science, business, and digital transformation. The DZA wants to take on these challenges.
