Live Blog of the Dark Matter Debate in Bonn

Starting at 3pm local time (Germany), Andreas (AHW) and Marcel (8minutesold) will try to live blog from the debate about Dark Matter between Simon White and Pavel Kroupa in Bonn. As there is no live video stream available, this seems to be the only live coverage of the event. You can follow the report in the field below and even send in a comment or two.

Author: Marcel S. Pawlowski

I am a postdoc at the Department for Astronomy of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, OH (soon Hubble Fellow at UC Irvine). My work revolves around tidal dwarf galaxies – second-generation galaxies forming from the debris of galaxy collisions – and their use for testing models explaining the dark matter phenomenon. During my PhD studies in Bonn (in Pavel's group) my research concentrated on the phase-space distribution of the Milky Way's satellites (dwarf galaxies, globular clusters and tidal streams), their possible formation scenarios (in particular tidal dwarf galaxies) and tests of cosmological models on (cosmologically) small scales. My research interests are complemented by my interest in the philosophy of science and in science outreach.
