Join the „Long Night of Female Astronomers” and be inspired by four Max Planck scientists and their research

20 November 2022

On 8 December 2022, you have the chance to meet four female Max Planck astronomers and learn more about the fascinating science they are investigating, as well as about what it is like to be a female in this field.

The ESO Supernova doors will open at 18:00, giving you access to our exhibition for one hour, before you enter the planetarium. On its 360 degree dome, you will be immersed on a trip to the Universe with the show “Unseen Universe”.

Four short talks by female astronomers will then cover topics such as: the first images of black holes ever taken and how these massive, mysterious objects form; using supercomputers to generate virtual universes; and the rising „stars” of recent astronomy research — gravitational waves. The talks will be followed by a discussion on women in astronomy.

The event tickets cost 10 euro. Learn more about the event and book your tickets here.
