I have to get to a meeting, but we have to have this news in English right now:
At 11.15 this morning zu Guttenberg held a brief press conference and announce that he is resigning immediately as Minister of Defense.
Yesterday a basket full of signatures from scientists and doctoral students in Germany was taken to the Chancellor's office protesting the opinion that it was just a few footnotes that were missing. Honesty is our currency in science!
We are very relieved that he has taken this step. We also hope that this is a wakeup call for the scientific community to look more closely into how we mentor students.
