Thursday, 07 December, 2017

The winner of our open house Day balloon competition has managed to reach a distance of 140 kilometres.

On October 21st 2017 our open house day Garching campus took place and MAP researchers presented their work on the subject of light opening - for the first time - the doors of the Centre for Advanced Laser Applications (CALA). During the course of the day our visitors were offered balloons to release into the sky, and the winning results are now in. One balloon came out especially successful flying to Geretsberg, a village in Upper Austria.

The results from the balloon competition are available here.
