The debate had the following format:
First Simon White had 25 minutes to present his point of view. This was followed by questions to him from the audience (about 5 minutes). Then Pavel Kroupa had 25 minutestime to present his point of view, again followed by 5 minutes questions. Following this, Simon White and Pavel Kroupa were asked to each give five minute statements summarising their positions. The actual debate then commenced, which also included the audience.
The lecture theatre in the Physics Insitute was overfilled; 300 people attended the event, and another room with a TV monitor showing the life proceedings was also overfilled. Late-arrivals did not find a seat nor standing room.
The podcast is now on-line at Uni-Bonn-TV: Dark Matter: A Debate.
Also available is “Dark Matter in five minutes” which contains the five-minute statement each by Simon White and Pavel Kroupa. These five minute statements were given after both 25 minute talks and before the actual debate ensued.
UPDATE: Finally, the actual discussion between Pavel Kroupa, Simon White and the audience is online, too: “Dark Matter, the Debate“.
After the Debate, the German TV programme scobel conducted individual interviews, in German, with Simon White and Pavel Kroupa. These are available at “Interviews: Dark Matter: A Debate“.
One week later, on November 25th, a German television conducted another debate on live-TV (see the bottom of our blog “Reactions to the Dark Matter Debate and anohter one in German TV“). This debate is in German and can be viewed on the relevant scobel page “Raetsel Dunkle Materie: Neue Studien stellen ihre Existenz in Frage (translation: “Mystery Dark Matter: New studies raise doubts on its existence”).
