Read aloud How physicists create oxygen from oxygen, why Venus is seen only twice in the sun in 243 years, how human beings orient themselves in virtual worlds, why Bronze Age miners had it better than today? and much more in the new picture of science. From 15 May 2012 at the kiosk. The title theme of the June issue is the fabric of the opposite world: Antimatierie. Physicists have found ways to make the counterpart to some substances. Exotic matter-antimatter compounds have already emerged and a new field of research? the antichemie. How scientists succeed and in which areas these rare and expensive materials should be used, explains astronomy editor Rüdiger Vaas.

A maze to balls
From space to hamster wheel: Researchers at the University of Bremen send test persons into an imaginary world and observe how they orientate themselves in it.

Today, ores are at least as valuable as they were then. Especially in the electrical industry, they play a major role. The promotion is still complex and expensive. Therefore, some companies have come up with something: they recycle the coveted materials from electronic waste. In the image of the science of multimedia, we introduce you to a few successful business models.
