Lay Summary (German)

Lead
Das International Space Science Institute (ISSI) bietet ein Forum für Weltraumwissenschafter, Astronomen, Beobachter, Experimentatoren und Theoretiker zur vergleichenden Analyse und Interpretation von Daten und Resultaten der grossen Zahl von aktuellen und früheren Weltraummissionen in einem internationalen Umfeld.
Lay summary
Das Programm des ISSI befasst sich hauptsächlich mit der Physik des Sonnensystems und deren Verbindung zur Astrophysik und Kosmologie einerseits sowie den Erdwissenschaften andrerseits. Die internationale Gemeinschaft der Weltraumwissenschaft, Astrophysik und Erdwissenschaft aus dem Weltraum trifft sich am ISSI für Workshops, Arbeitsgruppen, Fora, Internationale Teams, oder als einzelne Gäste für eine Woche bis mehrere Monate. In den 21 Jahren seit seiner Gründung haben 4868 verschiedene Wissenschaftler aus 54 Ländern das ISSI besucht, viele davon mehr als einmal.

Abstract

The International Space Science Institute (ISSI) is an Institute of Advanced Studies where scientists from all over the world meet in a multi- and interdisciplinary setting to reach out for new scientific horizons. The main function is to contribute to the achievement of a deeper understanding of the results from dif-ferent space missions, ground based observations and laboratory experiments, and adding value of those results through multidisciplinary research in the framework of international collaboration.The scientific programme of ISSI is primarily focused on solar system sciences. It also includes implications of measurements in the solar system to astrophysics and cosmology on the one hand and to Earth sciences on the other. ISSI serves the national and international communities of space sciences, astrophysics, and Earth sciences with a program of Workshops and Working Groups and by hosting international teams. In the 21 years of its existence some 4868 individual scientists from at least 54 countries have participated in one or more of the ISSI activities.
