It begins in Paderborn: The new touring exhibition of the Max Planck Society, the “Science Tunnel”, starts in a small town 150 kilometers away from Mülheim on the 18th of October. It is a multimedia exhibition at the Heinz Nixdorf MuseumsForum that wants to take the visitors on a journey to the future of science.

There will be eight different sections of the exhibitions, like astrophysics, molecular biology or research of matter. The visitors can explore the different scientific projects of the Max Planck Society on their own - via touch screens.

Scientists of the Max Planck Institut für Kohlenforschung present their research as well. One of the exhibits is called “New tools for selective synthesis” which deals with Ilija Coric’s project. He is a member Prof. Dr. Benjamin List’s group. Hydrogen storage and cellulose are other examples of our participation.

A series of lectures accompanies the exhibition in Paderborn. Prof. Dr. Ferdi Schüth will give a lecture about energy consumption and climatic change on Thursday, 10th of January, in 2013.

After leaving Paderborn in February 2013 the Max Planck Science Tunnel will travel around the world. The exhibition will be shown in Russia, China and Brazil.
