Berlin Science Week: When the astrophysicist met the artist…


By Monika Müller-Kroll

For Berlin Science Week, we came up with our own little experiment. We’ve matched two people from different fields that haven’t met before. We want to talk about what they’re working on and perhaps find some common ground.

For this broadcast, we paired up Noam Libeskind, a faculty member at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam and multimedia artist Sadie Weis, who spent seven weeks with scientists at the Paul-Drude-Institut für Festkörperelektronik.

Sadie Weis will be presenting her work on nanomaterials at the Paul-Drude-Institut on Nov. 10.
