The mystery, which is behind this stability, has now been solved to some degree - and this inspires scientists to rave about symphonies, harmonies, violins and wind instruments. Read all about it in September’s theme: Symphony in steel.

What makes iron stable in high temperatures? Material scientists have long occupied themselves with this question, which is of huge importance both for steel manufacturing and for steel processing.

The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart

Scenes Magic Flute; copyright Hans Jörg Michel
The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart is certainly one of the most well-known operas in the world. However, those who experience the performance of Barrie Kosky and the theatre group “1927“, which had its premiere at the Komische Oper Berlin in 2012 and in the meantime was also hailed in Los Angeles, will be astonished: The presentation plays in a virtuoso manner with your own associations and viewing habits. The singer/performers interact with an imaginative animated film that follows Mozart’s magical music, and which makes the fairytale world, in which Tamino, Pamina and Papageno feel at home, come alive.
