01 in the Eifel mountains, a small mountain range located near Bonn, the world's largest moveable radio telescope works for 10 years. Its antenna has a diameter of 100 meters, the 3200 tons of steel and iron can be rotated with mathematical precision in all directions.
With this ear space can working here 170 scientists radio signals from the emergence time of the world received signals that were sent out around 15 billion years ago. The production of a radio Atlas of that captures the radio emission of the whole sky belongs to the scientific track record of radio astronomers and astrophysicists. The scientists discovered molecules that provided new material the speculation about life forms in space, in other galaxies systems and they approached the secret of the creation of the world, the suspected "big bang". In future, scientists from Effelsberg To want to reinforce their cooperation with foreign radio telescopes. Through the merger of all the world's radio telescopes, the Earth is a single giant telescope that can pick up signals from the farthest zones of space at the same time from time to time.
02. folk festival in the cities of Europe on the occasion of the first elections to the European Parliament. In March 1982, exactly 25 years had passed since the signing of the "Rome contract", the founding document of the European Community. The idea of a United Europe was born in the rubble of the second world war.
The war had destroyed Europe, people were at the end of their tether. After a thousand years continuous wars and conflicts the Europeans had had enough. Towards a United Europe, in a common future without national egoism and separating boundaries, was the watchword.
In Rome, the economic foundation for a United Europe was laid in 1957. Germany, France, Italy, Belgium, Holland and Luxembourg agreed a common market in which all economic and trade barriers, and later also the political barriers should be covered.
Today, the boundaries between the Member States have become meaningless. The Europeans have freedom of movement and can in each EC State looking for work or start a business. The European Community has become an economic power, providing their citizens prosperity and social security. Of course, there were also setbacks and failures, such as the common agricultural market. The stable and affordable supply of 270 million consumers will be bought with unreasonably high subsidies. Here again, order to create, is generally regarded as the so far most severe test of the community.
On the European Security Conference in Helsinki, the EC States for the first time represented a common foreign policy position. The community with a voice speaks to the Middle East problem.
For developing countries, an important trade and economic partner has become the community advanced in the meantime to the United Kingdom and other States. The European Community shall not only the most development aid, but it has abolished also the most tariffs on goods from developing countries as an expression of its liberal economic policies.
03. a noticed A lot these weeks exhibition in Munich: American painting from 1930 to 1980. Put together by the Director of the New York Whitney Museum, the exhibition marked the two main eras in the American painting of this century: the 1930s, as the American painters dealt with the European avant-garde and adopted in many stylistic, and the 1950s, in which American art moved from the European model and in turn the international art scene began to dominate with pop and op art.
The common style terms are hardly nochanwendbar on most of the work of the 70s: content landscapes and still lifes emerge again, formally, the hyper-realism sets new accents. Kunstkerwer discovered much of what is familiar to them from the European art scene among the visitors of this exhibition.
04. Ochsenfurt, a small medieval town on the main, new buildings were allowed only at the edge of the village, the old town centre remained intact. Environmental protection is the large tagged To write here and if that modern technology can be used, so much the better. The large sugar factory outside the city gates had let the so-called waste heat of their machines many years unused escape as vapor through the factory protective stone. Until the Ochsenfurt on the incursion came to heat its old town with this heat. The diesel generators of the factory were similarly refitted and combined with a heat pump.
Heat storage and Reheater were installed on the farm. 90 ° c hot water in the old town flows through the central pipe now.
in 1981, the connecting pipes in the houses of the old town were moved. The cost was shared by the city and the sugar factory, which is paid for the supply of heat. At the end of the year the first 600 households were connected. Also communal facilities such as the City Hall are now heated by district heating. The city and its inhabitants the waste heat system has paid off. The heating of houses and apartments has become to almost 50 percent cheaper, and air pollution significantly decreased by reducing the private heating systems.
05. Otto-Hahn school in Hamburg: a so-called comprehensive school, where the children of the fifth class of the school can remain high. Within this force as modern educational approach, the ratio was determined new student teacher parent. Students may now say in some decisions, and they exercise it vigorously, in the Student Council, in which two representatives from each class sit.
The Student Council represents the interests of students to the school. Whether it is now comes to the establishment of a smoking room for students or order a new breaks, to the assessment by the teachers, or to questions of teaching: students have a right to submit to the Executive Board. Direct representatives of the students is the speaker chosen by them, who has access to the school at any time. The climate has long been liberalised at German schools has given rise many new student newspapers: their own, independent. Mouthpieces of pupils what they denounce abuses in the school or take on socio-political issues. A censorship of these newspapers is prohibited by law.
An important decision-making body is the so-called School Conference in which teacher and El tern work together. This concerns the overall interests of the school, for example towards the State. Teachers do not rare then, students and El-tern common front against the authorities.
06. not just tourists, even art historians praise it as a tourist attraction: the Renaissance town hall of Bremen, one of the most beautiful testimonies of German architecture from here, the big port city is governed since 1410. The Social Democrats are the Mayor and Senate since the war. In the centuries before shipowners and merchants determined the fate of the city, which it has always understood, to stay out of the wars and conflicts of the time.
In contrast to many other historical town halls in Germany, which serve only the representation, the pulse of modern beats here: a fully functional Government Headquarters, who are nevertheless endearing traditions. About the Treasury.
The treasure is not gold or silver, but wine. The old precious vine juice stored in bottles and barrels serves a dual purpose: earned citizens get it thank slowed instead of the order prohibited in Bremen. And he helps the legendary reputation to maintain this vault at wine connoisseurs has in the Ratskeller.
Because the Hall was never destroyed, testimonies of almost all art and cultural epochs have been preserved since the Renaissance - like this portal decorated with Baroque carvings. Bremen is especially committed to its maritime tradition. German politicians and business leaders, it is considered the great honor, once the annual "Schaffer meal" to participate, invite to the Bremen shipowners, captains and merchants in the City Hall. Since 1545.
07. top athletes in the Federal Republic of Germany. For example Cornelia Hanisch, world champion in foil fencing.
This is the everyday of world champion: the 29 year-old "Conny", as it is called, is a teacher at a vocational school in Offenbach.
In the afternoon, biology, German and economics - the teacher - subjects are forgotten. In a fencing school, Cornelia Hanisch training condition and technical standard.
Five years ago it was the thunders, the silver medal at the fencing World Championships. in 1979, she became world champion for the first time. Her coach Horst-Christian Tell has led them to the top of the world. That it was alien to her grim success compulsion, that she has a rather playful relationship to the fencing at all sporting ambition, makes them particularly sympathetic. "I have fun," she says, "otherwise I'll aggressive!" Their decision to continue to fight, is only for one year.
Whether it continues in the next Jahr international, will decide in the summer. Then, Cornelia Hanisch wants to defend her title at the World Championships in Mexico.
