Fast forward science entry

Fast forward science, is a video competition for science short films, discussing current research. The idea is to make this research as  broadly comprehensible as possible, meaning that you do not need a PhD to actually understand what the film is about. This year is the first time I have co-entered this competition, with a film by Guillaume Jouvet. Below you can find the German version of the film, that was needed for the competition:


(In the future I will also post an English version of the film.) This short film aims to illustrate Guillaume’s research and in particular focuses on a scientific paper he published last year (2013) which discusses how computer simulations of a glacier can actually be used to reconstruct the trajectory path of a dead body within the glacial ice and in this way solve the mystery of three hikers who had disappeared on a hike over 80 years ago.
