Xplore the world of physics and astronomy with scientists from the Niels Bohr Institute, University of Copenhagen. Join the researchers in the arctic cold in Greenland, in their quest to discover the mysterious Universe, missions to Mars and in the world’s largest particle accelerator in CERN.
|1||CleanVideoNBI NEWS: GOLDEN SPIKE IN ICE CORE||The Ice and Climate research team at Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen has led the NordGRIP project, which drilled a column of ice core all the way from the top of the inland ice through more than 3 kilometers of ice – down to the bottom. The ice contains information about past climates, something that has gained an entirely new significance – in the determination of the geological ages of the Earth. For the ice can answer a geological question that nobody else has been able to answer before – that is to establish the precise time that the last glacial period ended and the warmer present-day climate began.||10 12 2008||Free||View in iTunes|
|2||CleanVideoEDUCATION: FIRST CLASS PHYSICS||The physics students at the Niels Bohr Institute are now being taught in a whole new way, which has given fantastically good results. The traditional form of teaching with lectures in large auditoriums is being supplemented with physics experiments, where the students themselves work with the experiments. This has resulted in a very high pass rate.||21 10 2008||Free||View in iTunes|
