CROSSING BORDERS STRETCHING BOUNDARIES
Presents the Bose –Einstein lectures on science, technology and environment which were held in India under the auspices of the German Embassy and the Federation of Indo-German Societies. They cross the borders of conventional sciences as well, narrow nationalism, and stretch the boundaries of knowledge. The title commemorates the interaction between prominent Indian Physicist Satyendra Nath Bose and Albert Einstein, which led to the theory of Bose – Einstein Condensation, an important contribution to sub atomic physics which was proven by experiments only 70 years later. The topics covered range from physics and astronomy to science policy in the twenty first century, global research and development cooperation, the compatibility of environmental protection in economic development, new findings in the exploration of outer space. They stretch the borders of science in its relationship with religion and its limitation.
