    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – POWER OF WOOD – RESOURCE OF THE FUTURE?

    Unless we use wood more sustainably, the world’s forests might have disappeared in 200 years. We present groundbreaking methods in sustainable forestry and in the energy industry. There are around 3 quadrillion trees worldwide, which means approximately 400 trees for every person. But increasingly intensive forms of farming are depleting wooded areas. Global deforestation is occurring so quickly that in 200 years the world’s wooded areas might have disappeared altogether. To prevent this from happening, forests have to be managed […]

  • BRAIN BEATS – A JOURNEY INTO OUR SONIC FUTURE

    BRAIN BEATS – A JOURNEY INTO OUR SONIC FUTURE

    Can new technologies help us experience music and sound in a new way? Can they improve performance and change our behaviour? Find out about the latest research into music and neuroscience. In a world full of visual stimuli, sight seems to be the most important of all our senses. In recent years, however, we have gained new scientific knowledge about hearing. New discoveries about the way our brain reacts to sound and music now point to a more sonically influenced […]

  • BOOK HUNTERS

    BOOK HUNTERS

    On the trail of historical and modern-day book hunters: scientists, historians, book lovers and librarians who demonstrate untiring effort and often take great risks to preserve our cultural heritage. Ancient civilisations possessed a vast amount of knowledge that was documented in hundreds of thousands of manuscripts. At the end of the Roman Empire, the majority of these cultural treasures vanished. Book hunters often risked their necks to track down ancient manuscripts and preserve them for future generations. One of the […]

  • C-SECTION CONTROVERSY

    C-SECTION CONTROVERSY

    Within just twenty years, caesarean section rates have more than doubled in most industrial nations. We look at the medical and social consequences of this global trend in Germany, France, Brazil and China. Within just twenty years, the number of caesarean sections performed in industrial nations has more than doubled. Caesareans undoubtedly save lives. But in some countries, more children are born by c-section than vaginal delivery – a development that can have consequences. Caesarean sections have always posed a […]

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – ACOUSTICS, THE EFFECT OF SOUND

    Researchers in scientific institutions and industry are studying the effects of sound on human health. Noise and infrasound can have a negative impact on the human health, but it can also be useful for scientific research. Discover fascinating facts from the different areas of sound research. Loud noise makes us ill. This is something we’ve known for a long time. Sound scientist Professor Jürgen Hellbrück examines the effects of sound on human health. The psychologist is interested first in audible […]

    WAR AND GAMES

    Drones and remote-controlled weapons and robots are the war technology of the future. Controlling them via a screen is like playing a computer game. The film visits laboratories, games designers and guardians of morality. Sophisticated new machines can spot the movement of every mouse and man in water, on land and in the air. And they can kill. Automatically. Operating drones and remote-controlled weapons via a screen is like playing a computer game. What do game designers have in common […]

  • READY FOR TAKE-OFF – THE ALL-ELECTRIC AIRCRAFT

    READY FOR TAKE-OFF – THE ALL-ELECTRIC AIRCRAFT

      Elektra One is a single-seat, electrically powered composite aircraft. The electricity for the plane is generated by solar-charging hangars. Its designer is aviation pioneer Calin Gologan. Will the aircraft of the future make the test flight from France to Tunisia? Planes are his great passion. Calin Gologan has invented and built numerous planes – big ones for Airbus, small ones for amateur pilots. Five years ago, he had an experience that changed everything. At an air display, he watched […]

  • OUT OF THE SILENCE – THE HEALING POWER OF SOUND

    OUT OF THE SILENCE – THE HEALING POWER OF SOUND

    Sound has become an established element of conventional medical therapy. We discover a realm beyond our familiar perception of music where the phenomenon of “sound” takes on many different therapeutic forms. What can music do? Can sound heal? In Oriental and Asian cultures, it has never been doubted that music has a therapeutic, healing potential. Enlightened Western societies, however, stopped believing in the healing powers of sound for many years and focused on scientifically proven findings in medicine. This attitude […]

  • SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – FOOD OF THE FUTURE

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – FOOD OF THE FUTURE

    What will we eat in the future? In order to reduce the consumption of food from animal sources, food technicians are looking for new plant-based proteins. One promising alternative product could be the lupin. A good seven billion people live on our planet. What will happen when that figure rises to ten billion or even twelve? Scientists say that we could feed twelve billion people today, but we throw about a third of our food production away, we make electricity, […]

  • SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – HUMAN INTERFACES

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – HUMAN INTERFACES

    Discover with us the future of implants. “Human interfaces” are devices that can be linked to human sensory organs and thus achieve some astonishing results. Almost one in ten people live with a disability. For centuries, craftspeople, engineers and scientists have developed aids to make life easier for the disabled. Modern technologies are bringing hearing to the deaf and sight to the blind. And sophisticated prostheses are making everyday life a little easier for people without limbs. So-called “human interfaces” […]

  • SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – THE LIGHT FANTASTIC

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – THE LIGHT FANTASTIC

    Modern lighting technology not only reduces energy consumption but adjusts colour and brightness and stabilises biorhythms. Find out more about the latest developments and the future of lighting technology. Lighting turns night into day, but not for free. Globally, lights consume almost one fifth of all electrical energy produced. New street lights based on LED technology aim to halve the power consumed by public lighting. LEDs are not more economical than traditional gas-discharge lamps, but they can illuminate streets more […]
