Mechanics Meets Energy 2018

Mechanics Meets Energy 2018

The sixth Mechanics Meets Energy symposium took place at Kloster Steinfeld/Eifel from January 29th – February 2nd 2018. Within the five days, 45 presentations were given including four by guest speakers. On Wednesday afternoon we made a trip to our sister institute MPI for Radio Astronomy to visit their radio telescope at Effelsberg.
