Leibniz Science Cube

The Leibniz Science Cube of Communications and Marketing illustrates research projects of Leibniz University Hannover matching the current “Science Year” motto. This year, under the heading "Leibniz UNIversum", the university presents exciting research in the field of astrophysics, satellite-based geodesy and quantum optics, related to the universe theme. Visitors will also learn what Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz thought about crystalline spheres in the sky or countless Earths in space. The Leibniz Science Cube is designed in such a way that the "Leibniz UNIversum" exhibition can be enjoyed individually.
