How the Webb telescope unravels the world
This week's Geist Heidelberg gets off to a highly interesting start. Anyone who thinks dust is merely annoying or even harmful to health is mistaken. Jens Soentgen reports on the enormous importance of the smallest particles. Eileen Furlong, a biologist from Heidelberg, also shows us that the public can be wrong in its opinion: "The decoding of the genome does not mean that everything there is to research has been explored; it is just the beginning of a fascinating journey of discovery. Mutation and selection as in the human genome also exist in the cosmos. Günther Hasinger, who was instrumental in the development of the Webb telescope, will report on this. The adventurous journey of science began with Alexander von Humbold and continues with dedicated scientists at Geist Heidelberg. Pack your bags and come along. We look forward to your visit!
