Another success story of Multi-Channel Spectroscopy

Our colleagues of the innoFSPEC Multi-Channel Spectroscopy group have achieved great new results with their research on stars in the spiral galaxy NGC 300. By telling the story of how astronomy has reached this point, Prof. Dr. Martin M. Roth helps us understand why this result is so exciting. Visit the related blog here and learn more about:

  • The history of spectroscopy in astronomy
  • How galaxies can be turned from blurry patches of light to dazzling bubbles of stars
  • How the MUSE instrument picks out individual stars in other galaxies
  • That two new ESO telescopes will be able to investigate stars in other galaxies in even more detail

innoFSPEC @ Potsdam exhibition "Science in the centre"

On 19 January 2019, there was the opening of the exhibition "Science in the centre" - 130 m of science - at the annual light event in Potsdam. 20 large-format boards illustrate the diverse and exciting science landscape of Potsdam - among them a 2 x 6 m board designed by us, innoFSPEC Potsdam with the title "What happens in small molecules and large galaxies?".

The open air exhibition is located between Bildungsforum/Platz der Einheit and the state parliament and will last until at least end of August 2019. Have a look at the exhibition brochure here.
