Scientists Meet Scientists – Wednesday Coffee Talk by Prof. Sherry Suyu (Observational Cosmology) on peeking around cosmic corners


Prof. Ernst Rank and the TUM-IAS team invite the scientists of TUM and their guests for coffee each Wednesday! Just come over to the TUM-IAS after lunch between 1:00 - 2:00 p.m. and have a coffee with us, meet other scientists and listen from time to time to a short talk (10-15 mins) on a recent major TUM publication or issue – aimed specifically at a non-expert audience.

On November 29, 2017, Prof. Sherry Suyu (Observational Cosmology) will talk about a newly measured expansion rate for the local universe, possibly pointing towards new physics beyond our current knowledge of the Universe (TUM press release).
