Global telecommunications with lasers
Lasers communicating from the earth with satellites in the atmosphere: it sounds far-fetched, but it could be a valuable improvement towards connecting remote parts of the world to the internet. TU Delft has raised funding through the Open Technology Programme from the NWO's Applied and Technical Sciences domain to further explore the potential of this innovation.

Symposium on von Neumann: perhaps the greatest mathematician in modern history
John von Neumann (1903-1957) was a Hungarian-American mathematician who made essential contributions not only in mathematics but also in physics, computer science and economics. In many ways he shaped the future we live in. The Embassy of Hungary in the Netherlands, in cooperation with Júlia Komjathy of the EEMCS faculty, organised a symposium commemorating the remarkable legacy of one of the greatest - but relatively unknown - mathematicians in modern history.

The Delft Satellite Delfi-C3 Has Come to Its End
Last night, probably between 21:00 and 22:00 CET, the nanosatellite Delfi-C3 reached the end of its life at the age of 15. The Delfi-C3, the first satellite built by students, burned up in the atmosphere. In 2006, the small satellite was built by scientists from TU Delft, along with a group of about 60 students. It was launched from India in 2008. Since then, it has orbited the Earth more than 85,000 times, traveling approximately 3.7 billion kilometers.
