Café & Kosmos 7 June 2011

Quantum mechanics, on Earth and in space

3 June 2011

As people see no connection between their everyday experience and the concepts of quantum mechanics, they usually perceive the subject as strange and complicated. Quantum mechanics is the theme of the next Café & Kosmos discussion on Tuesday, 7 June 2011: Dr Stefan Kluth, from the Max-Planck Institute for Physics, will show that quantum mechanics has much more impact on our daily life than it appears. He will also discuss how important the principles of quantum mechanics are for our understanding of astronomical observations.

The Café & Kosmos series of discussions is organised jointly by ESO, the Excellence Cluster Universe and the Max-Planck Institutes for Physics, Astrophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics. The discussions take place on the second Tuesday of each month at the Vereinsheim, in Munich (please note the change of day and venue, as of May 2011). After a brief introduction the scientists take questions from the audience and discuss current issues from the cosmos.

Please note that the Café & Kosmos events take place in German.
