► Asteroid samples landed in Australia

A capsule from the Hayabusa2 mission brought 4.5 billion-year-old fragments of the asteroid Ryugu to Earth. The Institute of Geophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics helped develop measuring instruments for the mission.

► 25 million euros for quantum computers

Good news for the Quantum Valley Lower Saxony (QVLS): The “Niedersächsisches Vorab” supports the research alliance on their goal of a quantum computer by 2025.

► Aviation from different perspectives

What should sustainable flying actually look like? Dr. Sandra Buchmüller and Julia Stilke aksed for the SE²A Cluster of Excellence travelers, environmentalists and residents about their desires.

► Searching for the best problems

Algorithms sometimes need a lot of time processing large amounts of data. At the Institute of Analysis and Algebra, two new doctoral students have now started their research. They do not want to change the algorithm, but the problem.

► Artificial tissues for drug research

Since November 1, Stephan Reichl is professor at the Department of Pharmaceutics. With his team, he is researching how drugs can enter the human body.

► Three quarters of a century

We congratulate our former President Professor Jochen Litterst on his 75th birthday. He is still researching and working at our Carolo-Wilhelmina.

► Offers for university teachers

The project house is starting additional offers for the current winter semester on teaching and learning, starting in January.

► Asteroid samples landed in Australia

A capsule of the Hayabusa2 mission brought 4.5 billion years old fragments of the asteroid Ryugu to earth. The Institute for Geophysics and Extraterrestrial Physics helped to develop measuring instruments for the mission.

► Designing landscape

“Landscape for Architects. Landschaft für Architekten. Paisaje para Arquitectos” is the name of the new trilingual fundamental guide by Professor Gabriele G. Kiefer and Anika Neubauer. With 334 questions, it supports students in designing.

► Social media survey

We would like to learn more about which social media channels you use and what topics interest you on Facebook, Instagram and Co. That is why the Communications and Press Service has launched a social media survey together with the International House. The survey takes about five minutes – and there is even something to win.

► Forsch!

That is the name of the new podcast from ForschungRegion Braunschweig and the Braunschweiger Zeitung. In the first episode, Dr. Falk Pätzold from the Institute of Flight Guidance talks about the Arctic expedition MOSAiC.

► Darlings of the week

This week’s darlings are numbers, the basic food of a university of technology, so to speak. Without them, there would be no mathematics, no measurement technology and no Advent calendar. They also help us to see where we stand as a university. This is also the case with the new Leporello of the Controlling office, a short, concise overview of the most important figures in 2019. We are already looking forward to the next edition, then for the (still) current year.
