Die aus dem Weltall kommen

Inside the “blue eye of the planet”, deep down in Lake Baikal, scientists are collecting neutrinos using a special telescope. These minute particles from outer space are able to pass through any material: the earth, our skin…

Neutrino research has a ground-breaking importance for detecting and understanding fundamental events in space, happening thousands of light years away. Lake Baikal also provides perfect research conditions for scientists from all over the world. An expedition in winter and summer into remote Siberia.

In cooperation with the German Research Community.
