Over the summer we announced the venue of the next .Astronomy conference, Heidelberg. This is my current home base, and I’m excited to be at the coalface of the organisational effort once again. It’s a lot of work, but in the end it’s always satisfying to see everything come together.
The main venue will be the brand new Haus der Astronomie, which is currently under construction on MPIA’s picturesque site on the Königstuhl. The Haus’ Director Markus Poessel took this great picture of the building just last week. The work is coming along amazingly well! You can follow the progress of the construction works on the Haus’ facebook page.
