Open Day at GEO600

Open Day
On Saturday, September 30, 2023, the Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics (Albert Einstein Institute) and the Institute for Gravitational Physics of Leibniz Universität Hannover invite you to visit the German-British gravitational-wave detector GEO600 near Sarstedt. Between 12:00 and 16:00 CEST, all visitors can speak with researchers at the detector site about the current state of gravitational-wave astronomy, the crucial contributions of GEO600 as a think tank of international research, and visit the detector.

Public talk (in German) “Dark matter”

Public talk
About 90 years ago there were first hints, in the meantime it seems clear: Besides normal matter there is five times more mysterious, invisible “dark matter”, which is only noticeable by its gravity. This lecture summarizes what we know about dark matter, what we don't, and which experiments have searched for it and how. [more]
