“Physically, one can easily describe, why the Vienna Ball of Sciences is one of the most fascinating happenings of the season: Students and researchers, well-established scholars and those to be interact as one matter through space – the Vienna City Hall. This interplay is highly promising in terms of energy to be released, which guarantees innovation and development. While observing the dancing couples levitating alike heavenly bodies on the parquet floor, the big bang may happen dancing in the disco room. Let yourself loose in the endless dimensions of this night, and you will drift like planets in the orbit, forgetting, that outside dawn has broken.”
