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.

Dawn Mission

"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.

New questions raised by discovery in archive

April 09, 2015

In the course of recent investigations, human brain sections have again been discovered in the archive of the Max Planck Society in Berlin, which have not yet been fully investigated as far as their scientific and medical history is concerned. The brain sections belong to the estate of the doctor and brain researcher Julius Hallervorden and were donated to the archive in 2001. [more]
