        We all wonder about politicians’ statements, managers’ salaries and social injustice. But there are people amongst us who can no longer wonder in silence.

  • CHRONOBIOLOGY

    CHRONOBIOLOGY

        For thousands of years, people were able to live in sync with their “inner clock”. In our modern world, however, this is scarcely possible. Work, school or studies – for many people the day starts with the sound of an alarm clock. Still tired and sleepy, we try to get up to start the day. So why don’t we simply go to bed earlier the night before, despite having firmly decided to do so? Late risers have a […]

This is the focus of our documentary: the source of yoga, far removed from modern commercial excesses. We accompany a group of Western […]

  • SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – ENERGY STORAGE – POWER ON DEMAND?

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – ENERGY STORAGE – POWER ON DEMAND?

    Every power network requires some form of energy storage, because the consumption of electrical energy fluctuates constantly and power stations cannot adapt quickly enough. Many hydraulic power stations, for example, can dam up water and thus allow more or less energy to flow through the turbines as demand requires. The problem is that there are not enough water storage power plants. To save power from renewable energies, scientists are investigating new forms of energy storage. Some houses in Munich have […]

  • SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – BIOMASS – THE KEY TO THE MOVE TO ALTERNATIVE ENERGY?

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – BIOMASS – THE KEY TO THE MOVE TO ALTERNATIVE ENERGY?

    It will only be possible to cover all our power supply needs with renewable energies if we use a mix of different energy sources that supplement each other perfectly. These include wind energy, hydraulic power, photovoltaics and biomass. But what role will biogas power plants really play in the move to alternative energy? In these systems, bacteria break down biomass from agricultural waste to create biogas. However, the waste materials are not available in sufficient quantities, so a further renewable […]

  • SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATIONS

    SCIENCES OF THE 21ST CENTURY – HYDROELECTRIC POWER STATIONS

    For more than 5000 years, humankind has harnessed the power of water. Today, too, hydraulic power is the most important renewable energy source in the world. Austria and Switzerland source more than half their electricity consumption needs from hydraulic power; in Germany this figure is around 4%. When it was built in the Alps in 1924, the Walchensee power station was the largest hydroelectric power station in the world. Nowadays it is still the largest in Germany, although with an […]
