On January 29, 2009 our first
video podcast ("vodcast") was produced at
the MPE, kick-off of a series of about 12 five-minute-films on our institute
and our neighbour MPA. The topics will be our main scientific results,
but also the institutes themselves with their particular corporate
identity, their unique research atmosphere and, most importantly, the
persons who meet here every day and collaborate with each other.
At the premiere Stefan Gillessen, Frank Eisenhauer and Mona Clerico (MPE)
together with Jörg Lüning and presenter Sabrina Bachmann (Video München)
used their best endeavours to put the black hole in the centre of our
galaxy in perspective. At the moment we are planning our next MPE video
on Herschel/PACS and an MPA video on Planck.
The vodcasts will be distributed via our own channel at YouTube and
MünchenVideo, and we hope that they will reach many young people there
who didn't come into touch with astrophysics before.
