Tour at the IWF

June 6th, 2023

On June 6th, 2023, the next network meeting took place at the IWF. The meeting started with a short lecture about "Hot, but cool Magma-Planets" by Ludmila Carone. Following this, the students were able to attend a tour through the IWF, where David Fischer gave an insight into the Magnetometer-Lab work, Manfred Steller introduced the Onboard Computing-Labs, and eventually Günter Kargl presented the AstroLab's work. Master students from TU Graz as well as the YRP@Graz PhD students took this oppertunity to explore the laboratory work at the IWF.
