Our headline comes from radio communication where this phrase is used to announce that the station in question will stop transmitting and yield to the next one.
With this newsletter, we would like not only to thank you, but also to send our final greetings and send the WCSJ wagon towards Seoul in South Korea.
After the last-minute travel changes and on-site registrations, the final number of attendees at the WCSJ2013 was 807 from 77 countries. Well over 50 sessions, workshops and plenary talks were held, social events ranged from cocktails aboard an Ice Breaker to traditional Finnish dancing on an open-air stage. The most far-away destination was a comet speeding through the outer solar system – but only through presentations given at the Old Observatory of Helsinki.
The hectic celebration of science communication, rich with voices from all over the globe, was finally concluded with a fiery party at the Heureka Science Centre.
