Read out ScienceWeek @ Austria 2004 For a period of ten days, science will be governing in Austria when ScienceWeek @ Austria is being held for the fifth time from 7 to 16 May. On this occasion, the Atomic Institute of the Vienna University of Technology opens its doors and answers questions about radiation and radioactivity. And the Graz Institute for Systemphysiology uses ball and eggshell cardboard to explain the so-called "stochastic resonance effect". It occurs whenever random fluctuations amplify weak signals. In addition, the local mountain Plabutsch will be rebuilt as a three-dimensional puzzle in the Styrian capital. Anyone entering the Vienna Institute of Materials Physics, on the other hand, has to pull out his wallet. Because here is examined how fast euro coins make the rounds of different countries. Exhibitions and street experiments satisfy further thirst for knowledge.
