Mission C: Ideas Lab

Be part of it! Young people discuss our universe

Within the framework of a Science Night, young people will consider questions of time and space, the origins of the universe and the role of humankind in it. Beam me up just like Star Trek? Is that set to remain fiction or can it actually become reality? And is that really a desirable goal? These are just a few examples from the virtually endless list of unanswered questions posed by the universe. The perfect starting point for thought experiments…

The philosophers from the denXte network team at HHU (website in German only) have been creating unique formats for thought experiments for years. Everyone’s opinion counts: Following a brief introduction to the topic, participants can vote on various propositions from the debate via smartphone and contribute their own arguments to the debate with the researchers.

This kind of thought experiment is not something we see as an exclusive event: The impressions and results will be presented promptly here in video form to enable people to participate from home.
