Special announcement

Gravitational waves have become a very hot topic in astrophysics since their detection by LIGO in 2015. This means that also possible precursors are in the focus of research – general relativistic research because these objects are either black holes or neutron stars. The 2017 Biermann Lecturer, Masaru Shibata from the Kyoto University, uses numerical simulations and general relativity (or numerical relativity for short) to study the merger of such extreme objects and the properties of both the electromagnetic radiation and gravitational waves emitted during these events.

Ein Jahr am Südpol: Forschen und Leben im ewigen Eis

Dr. Martin Wolf überwinterte ein Jahr in der Antarktis, als Wissenschaftler am größten Teilchendetektor der Welt, dem IceCube-Experiment. Während dieser Zeit hinterließ ein höchstenergetisches Neutrino seine Spuren in IceCube, dessen kosmische Herkunft zum ersten Mal in der Geschichte der Astroteilchenphysik bestimmt werden konnte. Wie man das Dauerdunkel eines Polarwinters bei -65°C übersteht und dabei das IceCube-Experiment am Laufen hält, davon berichtet Martin Wolf (TUM) am 6.11.2018 in Café & Kosmos. [more]
