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.

Warum scheint die Sonne?

Im Inneren der Sonne verschmilzt Wasserstoff zu Helium und setzt dabei eine Menge Energie frei. Bereits nach rund acht Minuten kommen die ersten Botschafter dieser Energieumwandlung auf der Erde an. Das Experiment Borexino im italienischen Gran Sasso Untergrundlabor detektiert die Boten – Neutrinos - und sieht der Sonne dabei quasi in Echtzeit bei der Arbeit zu. Was die Physiker nach zehn Jahren Beobachtung über die Sonne herausgefunden haben, darüber berichtet Prof. Stefan Schönert von der Technischen Universität München. [more]
