Werner Gruber

Physicist, Author, Director of the Planetarium Vienna, Lecturer at University of Vienna

Werner Gruber is a physicist with heart and soul. For him physics does not end with his research in experimental physics at the University of Vienna or his work as director of the planetarium Vienna – he sees and wonders about the physics in everything, even the most ordinary things. That is how funny and informative bits such as "Die Physik des Gulasch". Through his work and his numerous writings and TV- and radio-columns he sparked interest for physics in many and thus he was awarded the price for national education by the city of Vienna.
