No Open Day at GEO600 in the summer of 2021

July 06, 2021

Because of the corona pandemic and the related infection control measures for GEO600 employees and visitors to the site, there will be no Open Day at GEO600 this summer. The event might take place in fall 2021. Guided tours for visitor groups are not offered until further notice.

As soon as we will offer guided tours and similar events, we will provide further information on the GEO600 homepage.

The gravitational-wave detector GEO600 is situated 20 kilometers south of Hannover close to Sarstedt near the village Ruthe. more
