Glass, the light needs to become the object of art. A highly regarded collection of contemporary glass art as a travelling through the Federal Republic went from Hamburg. The craft temporarily almost forgotten in Germany, to give an artistic dimension the glass, by cutting and grinding is when the audience up again in the course.
Most of the young glassmakers have recorded the influences of the leading glass artists in Scandinavia and the United States in their work.
A solid technical training is required to make the brittle material glass commemorated. Before the 31 year-old Hans Peter Kremer in a small Rhineland town set up a Studio, he obtained a master craftsman in the glazier trade. Kremer specializes in unstained glass. He works out the crystalline structure of the glass with facetted wedge cut. Circular discs made of clear, sometimes grey glass, beginning to shine through the cut and pasted in addition lenses. If the viewer moves its location, also the object itself seems to be due to the varying light refraction. The impression of movement: for Kremer symbol of his art and the art par excellence.
In the ERNO works for Aerospace in Bremen, the count runs down for a new space project. The mechanic put finishing touches to the space lab "Spacelab", which will be addressed in the coming year with the American long space shuttle "space shuttle" into space. In a few weeks, the U.S. space agency NASA will receive the first fully-equipped system.
4 years ago, the Bremen plant was commissioned to build Europe's first manned and reusable space station. About 50 companies in Europe and the United States deliver parts. The Bremen technicians have the task to create a functional system of the confusing puzzle of technical building blocks.
Spacelab consists of a cabin and an open work range, on which is built a whole apparatus of physical devices. The scientists flying with working in the cabin. Your name in space jargon "Payload specialist".
In this last phase of construction concerns the interaction between of the individual devices and systems. It is being tested in thousands of tests. This helps a computer can be used to simulate entire runs.
"Spacelab", and "space shuttle" will be assembled in Florida. If also the space shuttle keeps what it promises for their test flights, this European-American air unit will open a new chapter: the constant use of space as a celestial laboratory for still unsolved technical and scientific problems on Earth.
These days, the Federal Republic of Germany is 30 years old. The German citizens have to suspend also things about their country - such as unemployment or energy and environmental problems. Still, most Germans identify with this State. It is politically and economically stable and shows the ability to provide the modern, social processes.
Even if the economic strength of the Federal Republic is often overrated, is it fully aware of its role as one of the leading industrial countries and not evade their responsibility.
The second world war, triggered by the Nazi regime, leaving behind destroyed cities and industries. And this border across Germany.
in 1949, four years after the war, the Federal Republic of Germany was founded in the western part of the former German Empire.
The new democratic State put on peace and freedom. The social market economy has been the engine of reconstruction. Trade unions and employers were in the years of reconstruction to the social partnership. Foreign policy was that Germany took their place in the family of Nations. The reconciliation with France after centuries of enmity was the perhaps the most important step on the long road to the political unification of the free Europe.
Followed by the normalization of relations with the Eastern European States. In the treaties of Moscow and Warsaw, all sides committed themselves to renounce violence and to the peaceful settlement of disputes.
The future of Berlin was contractually secured. Treaties regulated relations with the second German State, the German Democratic Republic.
Realistic policy is made in Bonn. The Federal Republic is not meant as leading political power. On the other hand, it provides its international responsibility. It promotes the easing of East-West and is making its contribution to the world economic problems and the balance between the industrialized countries and the third world countries. Almost every city, every landscape has a different name for it: fair, Carnival, Carnival or DOM. It is always, a folk festival and the most popular mass fun of Germans to: 160 million people, the three population of the Federal Republic are annually counted on the 6,000 festivals between Munich and Hamburg.
Who vacation from everyday life makes some hours and crashing out in the noisy hustle and bustle, remembers little that these festivals have a religious origin. They were an accessory of Christian holidays - such as the traditional Christmas Cathedral of Hamburg - many centuries. In the Church believed retreat, at the Carnival, they defeated over the strands. A touch of anarchy, the desire to throw the usual conventions overboard, to the temptation to shock up by sophisticated showman technology: all of this may sound together, if the German big cities open up, to be kid again with his children and is captured by the glittering lure of this oldest show business industry in the world.
Alarm on the Rhine. The danger is the Cologne Cathedral. Environmental factors, especially pollutants in the air, provide incessant stone disintegration of the most important Gothic church of in Germany.
The Cathedral building lodge Cologne has taken the fight against the erosion. Strongly affected parts are replaced by new, more resistant rock types.
The difficult and lengthy renovation work will be led by a stone technician and the Cathedral Architect Dr. Wolff.
The Cathedral building lodge can look back on a 700jährige tradition of building with its modern stonemason and sculptor workshops. Today you include, in addition to highly skilled Masons and stone sculptors blacksmiths and metalworkers, several specialists for the preservation of medieval stained-glass Windows. They clean the precious Windows of the choir chapels in tedious detail work and prepare them against erosion.
Particularly at risk: the north façade. The bracing arches of the transept are threatening to collapse.
In Cologne, the traditional method of renewal of stone complemented by large-scale tests with chemical means of stone protection. The renovation is a race against time. She can only succeed if more air pollution is stopped.
The inhabitants of Miesbach became reluctant to them. Because young people are not only their clothes in the village image. What they drive in a rented farmhouse is still unusual.
Carefully restored timber-frame are the "Popol Vuhs" - as they call themselves - in the search for a new sound world. Your Scout is a synthesizer, a complicated electronic device with which they meditate musically before invited guests.
7 billion sounds believe to be able to elicit them her synthesizer. Their music experiments in the Bavarian holiday landscape are now flocking to America. 2 successful tours of Upper Lake have the "Popol Vuhs" already behind him.
So you can move in terms of race a motorcycle, on smooth ice, with spike-reinforced tires: ice Speedway.
ImWest Berlin fought this time ice stadium of Wilmersdorf, where two years ago, the best speed skater in the world denied their title fights, the fastest motorcycle riders off their curves duels. Semi-finals of the ice Speedway World Championship 1979 four riders compete in a run. Protected by thick leather clothing, they squeeze their 60 horsepower machines four times the ice oval. In the curves, they balance on their tyres steel nails. Strong machines without brakes and manual transmission: Since one alone skill and quick reaction.
Ice Speedway specialists carry out World Championships since 1966. As long dominate the riders from the Soviet Union. You can train all year round because they find an ice slope in their great country in every season. They stood on the podium in Berlin.
