Karsten Danzmann – Winner of the Körber European Science Prize 2017

The German physicist and his team have developed the key technologies with which direct evidence of gravitational waves was provided in the USA for the first time in 2015. Astronomers have thus literally opened a new window to the cosmos, as they were previously able to explore the universe only by means of electromagnetic waves – light, radio waves, X-rays or gamma rays. For these ground-breaking findings in gravitational wave research, Karsten Danzmann has been awarded the Körber European Science Prize 2017.
