NEWS at MPA

A total of ten new members, including Fabian Schmidt of MPA, have been appointed to the Young Academy at the Berlin-Brandenburg Academy of Sciences (BBAW) and the German Academy of Sciences Leopoldina. On 11 June 2016, they were introduced in an official ceremony in Berlin, starting a new phase in the interdisciplinary work of the Young Academy.

Black holes are fascinating – even though or especially because they cannot be seen; nothing, not even light, can escape their gravitational pull. Nevertheless their immediate surroundings are very interesting laboratories to study high-energy and relativistic processes in space. Astrophysical phenomena such as gas dynamics, magneto-hydrodynamics, and radiative transfer in a broad range of astrophysical phenomena will be the topic of this year’s Biermann Lectures by Mitchell Begelman from the University of Colorado.

Biermann Lectures 2016: Magnetism and Radiation in Motion, in Disks and Jets

An active Girls‘ Day

April 28, 2016

Again in 2016, the Max Planck Institute for Astrophysics invited 30 girls on the occasion of the nationwide Girls’ Day. Once the first shyness was overcome, the girls had lively discussions with the MPA scientists and asked many questions about astronomy and a career in science.
