The squishiness of the milky way

Astronomer Mary Williams from New Zealand came to Germany in 2007 to take up a post at the Leibniz Institute for Astrophysics in Potsdam. Before taking maternity leave recently she worked in an international team of around 50 researchers from around the world.

In this edition of Insight Germany she talks about the squishiness of the milky way, the sock police and one of Germany’s most unusual landscapes in the region known as Saxon Switzerland.
