What is time?
„Time is what you measure with a clock.“
Für Lehrer und alle Interessierten gibt es hier unseren „Entdecker Guide“ zum Download, der alles Wissenswerte zum Thema Gravitation noch einmal verständlich aufbereitet.
Darin sind außerdem Erklärvideos mit Versuchen enthalten, die das Phänomen der Schwerkraft spannend veranschaulichen und zum selbst experimentieren anregen. Sie sind als Ergänzung in den Guide eingebunden, können aber auch seperat angeschaut werden.

While overturning our understanding of gravity, he also changed our view of the nature of space and time itself. Probed to its most subtle predictions and confirmed countless of times, the GTR remains a theory of unsurpassed accuracy and elegance. It reinforced Einstein’s status as a superstar of modern science and made him the epitome of a genius.
Ironically, it is this standing as a prodigy that leads to reservations about engagement with the GTR in the greater public. People ask themselves, quite understandably, how could they could ever fathom a genius’ masterpiece?

In principle, it is always a challenge to tell a story in such a way that it inspires and captivates the audience and completely enthralls them for the duration of the story. This is even more difficult if the story wants to convey additional high-quality educational content such as complex knowledge about gravitational waves and time.
Peter Popp, along with his team, has done just this and more than succeeded. The dramatically gripping story of the little LIMBRADUR accomplishes it from the first minute – almost playfully to delight the whole family with the magic of »The Secrets of Gravity – in the footsteps of Albert Einstein«. Even more so, through the masterful use of the dome, the audience is completely wrapped up in the story and indeed positively drawn in.
Skillfully chosen perspectives, very good camera movements, extremely detailed scene imagery, very good illumination, convincing sound design as well as convincingly precise and detailed animations take the viewers on a unique journey through truly highly scientific topics. The highlight is that, no matter how lofty the subject matter, at no time does one feel overwhelmed. For children, the narrative is enchanting, allowing them to experience the subject matter informally while opening doors to fundamental ideas. Adults will recall their childlike curiosity and more than once experience a pleasant “aha moment”. In the end, the story will leave your heart pounding and your thoughts buzzing about the mysteries of life. What remains in every viewer is the realization to guide our children and to never stop asking questions.
