300 episodes

[We have episodes in German and English] How do scientists uncover phenomena and explain their connections? How do engineers design machines, methods and infrastructure? At omega tau, experts give detailed answers. Over the last ten years, we have produced 300 episodes in which we dug deeper, until we ran out of questions. Join us on our journey through the world of science and engineering: the closer you look and listen, the more interesting things get.

    349 – Großkrane Teil 1: Konstruktion bei Liebherr

    349 – Großkrane Teil 1: Konstruktion bei Liebherr

    Ich war bei Liebherr im Werk Ehingen und habe mich dort mit den beiden Konstruktionsleitern für Mobil- und Raupenkrane Bernd Boos und Roland Bohnacker über Funktionsprinzipien und Konstruktionsdetails von Großkranen unterhalten. Im Anschluss spreche ich dann mit Wolfgang Beringer über die Stunts die Liebherr im Laufe der Jahre mit ihren Kranen gezeigt haben.

    348 – ATLAS Computing

    348 – ATLAS Computing

    To conclude our detailed look at the ATLAS experiment, this episode looks at the computing infrastructure. We start out with the trigger systems that decide, very quickly, whether the data from a particular collision is worth keeping. We then discuss the reconstruction of the event, the simulation needed to understand the background as well as the LHC Grid used distribute data and computation over the whole planet. Our guest is CERN'n Frank Berghaus.

    347 – Photosynthese

    347 – Photosynthese

    In dieser Episode erklärt und Sebastian Triesch die Photosynthese funktioniert. Wir besprechen die grundlegenden Mechanismen, Aspekte der Entwicklung sowie verschiedene Varianten die man heute in Pflanzen findet. Wir reden außerdem über die Forschung zu Photosynthese beim Exzellenzcluster CEPLAS wo Sebastian promoviert. Am Ende sprechen wir auch ein bisschen über Gentechnik im allgemeinen.

    346 – Rettungsdienst

    346 – Rettungsdienst

    In dieser Episode spreche ich mit meinem Bruder Mathias über seine Arbeit als Notfallsanitäter beim DRK Heidenheim-Ulm. Wir sprechen über die Struktur und Organisation des Rettungsdienstes in Deutschland, Rollen und Aufgaben, sowie typische Szenarien bei Hausnotfällen und bei Verkehrsunfällen. Am Schluss reden wir darüber, wie Corona die Arbeit verändert (hat).

    345 – ATLAS Science

    345 – ATLAS Science

    After understanding the history and development of ATLAS (and covering the LHC and particle physics in general) in previous episodes, we are now at the point where we can try to understand how a scientist uses the data produced by one of these large detectors and make sense of it. This is what we'll do in this episode with physicist (and listener) Philipp Windischhofer. If you want to learn even more, you can check out these links provided by Philipp or read the last chapter of the book :-)

    344 – History and Development of ATLAS

    344 – History and Development of ATLAS

    ATLAS is one of the two general-purpose experiments at the LHC. It has been conceived, designed, and built over decades by hundreds of scientists and engineers from dozens of countries and hundreds of organizations. My guest, Peter Jenni, has been the head of the ATLAS collaboration for most of this time. In this episode we talk about science and engineering, but mostly about organizational aspects and the "community management" necessary to get such a magnificent machine off the ground.

I’m always interested and surprised by every episode

Love love love the long form deep dives into every topic. The yard stick against which you will come to measure all other podcasts.

Great Science, Physics, Aviation, and Tech podcast

My favorite science podcast that goes deep. Very structured and the host does a great job to put things in perspective and summarize points in his own words.
I would love to have an episode about FPGAs.

@German speakers: #298 Interessanter Einblick in die Dynamik der beider am Ende bei der ehrlichen und offenen Diskussion.
