The Einstein Telescope at the "Grenzlandkonferenz"
Those responsible for the German-Dutch border region meet regularly at the so-called Borderlands Conference. Yesterday, this took place in Aachen. The main event in the Coronation Hall of the City Hall was accompanied by a series of side events and workshops. Politicians from the Dutch province of Limburg, Aachen, the Aachen city region, the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the federal government met with scientists to talk about the Einstein telescope. We had a lively exchange and received many new impulses towards the approval of the project. Part of the side event about the Einstein telescope was a small exhibition about the project. In the picture, Prof. Stahl is explaining to some of the politicians the prototype mirror mount for the ET Pathfinder.
