World sensation in outer space: A research group under the aegis of Leibniz Universität Hannover has for the first time produced Bose-Einstein condensates under microgravity on board a sounding rocket. Cooled down almost to absolute zero, all particles assume the lowest level of energy and thus the same quantum-mechanical state, so that they can no longer be distinguished.
International students often have great difficulty finding affordable accommodation shortly before term starts. The Science Initiative, supported by Hannover’s higher education institutions and many other partners, has now launched a campaign called “Don’t leave us out in the rain” to help bring together landlords and students.
LISA Pathfinder is a test mission that seeks to test the key technologies required to measure gravitational waves in space – such as the perfect free fall of two test masses. A milestone on the path to the science mission, set to begin on 1 March 2016, has now been reached. LISA Pathfinder has, for the first time, released the test masses – two identical 46 mm gold-platinum cubes – from their ...
Cutting-edge research at Leibniz Universität Hannover: technology development for sensational detection of gravitational waves
The epochal detection, announced yesterday, proving Albert Einstein’s Theory of Relativity would not have been possible without scientific expertise and laser technology from Hannover. Together with his team, Professor Karsten Danzmann developed measurement technology for the two big gravitational wave detectors in the USA that directly measured gravitational waves for the first time ever.
