Alfred Wegener

Alfred Wegener aimed to create a revolution in science which would rank with those of Nicolaus Copernicus and Charles Darwin. After completing his doctoral studies in astronomy at the University of Berlin, Wegener found himself drawn not to observatory science but to rugged fieldwork, which allowed him to cross into a variety of disciplines. The author of the theory of continental drift - the direct ancestor of the modern theory of plate tectonics and one of the key scientific concepts of the past century - Wegener also made major contributions to geology, geophysics, astronomy, geodesy, atmospheric physics, meteorology, and glaciology. Remarkably, he completed this pathbreaking work while grappling variously with financial difficulty, war, economic depression, scientific isolation, illness, and injury. He ultimately died of overexertion on a journey to probe the Greenland icecap and calculate its rate of drift. This landmark biography - the only complete account of the scientist's fascinating life and work - is the culmination of twenty years of intensive research. In Alfred Wegener, Mott T. Greene places Wegener's upbringing and theoretical advances in earth science in the context of his brilliantly eclectic career, bringing Wegener to life by analyzing his published scientific work, delving into all of his surviving letters and journals, and tracing both his passionate commitment to science and his thrilling experiences as a polar explorer, a military officer during World War I, and a world-recordsetting balloonist. In the course of writing this book, Greene traveled to every place that Alfred Wegener lived and worked - to Berlin, rural Brandenburg, Marburg, Hamburg, and Heidelberg in Germany; to Innsbruck and Graz in Austria; and onto the Greenland icecap. He also pored over archives in Copenhagen, Munich, Marburg, Graz, and Bremerhaven, where the majority of Wegener's surviving papers are found. Written with great immediacy and descriptive power, Alfred Wegener is a powerful portrait of the scientist who pioneered the modern notion of unified Earth science. The book should be of interest not only to earth scientists, students of polar travel and exploration, and historians but to all readers who are fascinated by the great minds of science.

Die Morde der Hebamme
5,40 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Marburg 1610: Der Gelehrte Lukas von Wegener reist nach Brandenburg, wo er mit einem Horoskop einen Erbstreit im Hochadel lösen soll. Seine Frau Luzia - mittlerweile unbescholtene Bürgerin Marburgs - und seine Schwester Magdalene vertreiben sich die Zeit indessen mit einem geheimnisvollen Tagebuch, in dem nicht nur die entsetzlichste Seite des Hebammenhandwerks geschildert wird, sondern auch erschütternde Taten der Verfasserin zutage kommen. Als die Sterne Lukas in die Gefangenschaft leiten, scheint nur noch ein Wunder zu helfen. Derweil geschehen in Marburg seltsame Dinge und Luzia sieht sich gleich mehreren Herausforderungen gegenüber. Welche Absichten verfolgt die Schreiberin des dramatischen Tagebuchs? Welche Rolle spielt die schwarze Gestalt, die in den Strassen der Stadt ihr Unwesen treibt? Muss die Gelehrtenfrau am Ende ihr Geschick als Meisterdiebin einsetzen, um das Leben ihres Liebsten zu retten - und damit ihrer aller Zukunft gefährden? Der historische Roman 'Die Morde der Hebamme' ist nach 'Die Hexe muss brennen' und 'Die Huren des Apothekers' Tatjana Stöcklers drittes packendes Abenteuer um die Diebin Luzia.

Der Stechlin - Der General und der Dichter
6,99 € *
zzgl. 3,00 € Versand

Der Große Stechlinsee, liebevoll nur der Stechlin genannt, liegt 90 Kilometer nördlich von Berlin im Naturpark Stechlin-Ruppiner Land. Durch Theodor Fontanes Wanderungen durch die Mark Brandenburg und den Erfolgsroman Der Stechlin berühmt geworden, zog er viele Intellektuelle, Künstler und Prominente in seinen Bann, die sich an seinen verwunschenen Buchten Häuser und Villen erbauen ließen. Diese NDR Dokumentation folgt den Spuren von zwei Prominenten, die sich am See kennen lernten und gegensätzlicher nicht hätten sein können: dem Schriftsteller Armin T. Wegener (der im ersten Weltkrieg den Völkermord an Armeniern fotografisch festhielt und wegen seines offenen Protestes gegen die Judenverfolgung im Dritten Reich verhaftet wurde und schließlich emigrierte) und dem preußischen General Karl Litzmann (der schon 1929 als Reichstagsabgeordneter das Amt des Alterspräsidenten des Parlamentes innehatte).
