Max Planck Research

Magnetic fields are ubiquitous in the literal sense: they exist around planets, traverse our Milky Way and distant galaxies, and are not only present in galactic gas, but can also be found in the suns that evolve from such gas. Magnetars, for example, neutron stars that are only about 20 kilometers in diameter, have the strongest magnetic fields in the universe. Max Planck researchers learn a lot about the nature of the heavenly bodies by studying the cosmic phenomenon.

"Chimp &amp; See" is a new Citizen Science project launched by researchers of the Max Planck Institute for Evolutionary Anthropology. On <a href="#__target_object_not_reachable">www.chimpandsee.org</a>, volunteers can help the primatologists to evaluate video sequences taken from camera traps in Africa by watching short clips - with a little luck, they will spot chimpanzees and other wild animals.
