Join us as we connect the Nobel Prize Museum in Stockholm with the International Space Station (ISS) for a unique live conversation between the 2023 Nobel Prize laureates Ferenc Krausz and Moungi Bawendi, and Danish ESA astronaut Andreas Mogensen. Swedish ESA astronaut Marcus Wandt, who will take off on his space mission by the beginning of next year, will send us a greeting from the NASA training center in USA.

Over the years the Nobel Prize has awarded numerous achievements unraveling the mysteries of our vast Universe but also, like this year, the smallest components of our existence. This will be a chance for two scientists, who have received their Nobel Prize medals the day before for the discoveries of attoseconds and quantum dots, to have a conversation with astronauts. Join us to hear their perspectives on the importance of basic science, how we are constantly expanding our knowledge about the universe, and the challenges of conducting experiments in space.

It will also be a chance for Ferenc Krausz and Moungi Bawendi to connect with their fellow Nobel Prize laureates Niels Bohr, physics 1922, and Selma Lagerlöf, literature 1909. Join us to find out how!

The event will start with a question-and-answer session with Ferenc Krausz and Moungi Bawendi moderated by Carin Klaesson, curator the Nobel Prize Museum.

The event is arranged by the Nobel Prize Museum and European Space Agency.
