Daily Recap – Tuesday, 2 July 2024

Since we do know exactly where we are located (Lindau – I checked the map!), no wonder we have no idea how quickly half the Meeting has gone by already…

A possible explanation to why these three days have seemingly passed in attoseconds though, is the wealth of fascinating scientific formats we have had the pleasure to experience so far. Tuesday continued with Lectures and Agora Talks on various topics – some of them by Lindau first-timers! The following lunch was good for everyone in the Inselhalle but even better for the lucky Young Scientists who got to have an exciting conversation over a shared meal with Nobel Laureates during our Laureate Lunches. During the afternoon the first Panel Discussion of the week took place and afterwards the Open Exchanges offered deeper dives into previous discussed questions. In the evening LINO particpants as well as Lindau citizens got together in the Toskanapark for the traditional Grill & Chill barbecue.

Quote of the Day

„One of my hopes is that we can put the weirdness to work.“

William D. Phillips, Nobel Laureate in Physics 1997, on quantum entanglement.

Featured Blog Post

Blogger Ulrike Böhm advocates for more female perspectives in science. Her project „Women in Research“ features insights into the careers of women in diverse scientific fields. In Lindau she sat down with physical oceanographer Claire Yung who is a Young Scientist at #LINO24.

Fact of the Day

Unfortunately, other than the particles that make us up, we, as a whole, are not able to be in two places at the same time so some decisions have to be made every day. One especially tough one in Lindau: which Session should be attended?! Lucky for you, there is a place where you can catch up on the ones you missed. Our Lindau Mediatheque offers recordings of Agora Talks, Lectures, Panel Discussions and many more formats (since 1952) so you can enjoy it all in one place!

Today’s Highlight Session

While the Potential and Hype for quantum jokes is definitely high, what about Quantum Technology? Today’s afternoon Panel Discussion tried to approach this question and ask: Where Are We Headed?
