Im Naturhistorischen Museum Wien wurde heute eine neue Dauerausstellung zum Thema „Natürliche Radioaktivität“ (inklusive Kosmischer Strahlung) und „Lumineszenz“ (Fluoreszenz und Phosphoreszenz) virtuell eröffnet.
Das Museum ist bereits seit 20. Mai für Besucher geöffnet.

Zu sehen ist unter anderem ein Stück eines ca. 2 Milliarden Jahre alten natürlichen Kernreaktors (aus Oklo*, Gabun) und ein Live-Bild, das Kosmische Strahlung zeigt, die mit einem Spezialdetektor gemessen wird (Alpha-, Beta-, Gamma-Strahlung und Myonen).

New meteorite hall !

Im neuen Meteoritensaal sind spannende Forschungserkenntnisse über die Sterne, die vom Himmel fallen, zu entdecken und man kann ganz nebenbei die größte Meteoritenschausammlung der Welt erleben.

NHM
Naturhistorisches Museum Wien
http://www.nhm-wien.ac.at/

Opened 1889

Collections
The collections of the Department of Mineralogy and Petrography comprise a total of about 150.000 catalogued objects (the effective number of pieces is of course considerably higher). About 15% of the total inventory is on public display (in the case of the mineral collection it is even a fifth of the inventory). The public displays are distributed among 5 large exhibition halls, numbered Hall I-V (after entering the Museum, turn right and go up the stairs to visit Hall I). The significance of the mineral collection of the Natural History Museum Vienna lies in their rich content of objects from occurrences within the former area of the Austrian-Hungarian Monarchy and of the Alps. However, the collection also represents many "classic" deposits of Germany, Russia, Great Britain, Italy and other countries. Purchases of specimens on todays' broadly varied mineral market focus, taking into account the modest financial means available, mainly on minerals from Austria, Alpine-type mineral assemblages (Alps and comparable areas), selected pegmatite assemblages (e.g., Pakistan, Afghanistan and Nepal), new gemstones and semiprecious stones, as well as ornamental and synthetic material, and manipulated and fake jewelry. Also purchased are newly discovered meteorites and rare mineral species completing our systematic collection.

Research
Current research comprises mainly the scientific study of meteorites (and classification of new meteorites) and impact craters (two new impact structures were confirmed in the last few years), of gemstones and rare minerals (and their crystal structures), and of ore deposits and various mineral occurrences. Since 2007, more than 30 new mineral species were described by department staff and Dan Topa (Central Research Laboratories). Furthermore, historical aspects are studied scientifically.
