When Dark Stuff Becomes a Media Topic
One Nobel Prize is almost certain, maybe even more. This space mission sounds pointless and nerdy, but it has the makings of revolutionizing theoretical physics. Understanding dark matter and dark energy in the Universe – hypothetical assumptions so far – could explain gravity and even connect quantum mechanics and the theory of general relativity for the first time. My humble part of this revolution was to design, prepare and direct the launch event for 300 VIPs and media for the European Space Agency’s mission EUCLID in Darmstadt. Despite this intellectual topic, it was great fun working with all these brilliant minds of the project!
