About Us

[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.

334 – Kriminaltechnik beim LKA Baden-Württemberg

Im November habe ich das Landeskriminalamt Baden-Württemberg in Stuttgart besucht um mich dort zu Kriminaltechnik schlau zu machen. Nach einer kurzen Einführung zu den Aufgaben des LKA haben wir drei Themen genauer betrachtet: Daktyloskopie (mit Hagen Gunzenhauser), Waffen und Ballistik (mit Volker Schäfer) sowie DNA Analysen (mit Rasmus Förster).

333 – (Flying and Simulating) The F-14 Tomcat

The F-14 Tomcat is one of the most iconic fighters, certainly among its generation. In this episode we talk with Nick Pirnia about the aircraft's development and history as well as about flying it with former pilot Okie Nance. The aircraft is also available in the DCS flight simulator and the third part of this episode is a conversation with the development team from Heatblur about how to implement the F-14 in DCS; if you haven't yet, check out some of their videos, this thing looks unbelievably realistic!

332 – Attribution of Extreme Weather Events

An important consequence of the warming of the planet due to climate change is that the frequency and/or severity of extreme weather events will increase. But how can we tell whether a particular event can be attributed to the changing climate? Would it have happened in "normal" climate as well, and if so, how would the event have been different? This aspect of climate science is called attribution science, and the guest of this episode,

331 – Samanthas Lange Reise

Als italienische ESA Astronautin war Samantha Cristoforetti von November 2014 bis Juni 2015 für 200 Tage auf der Internationalen Raumstation. In ihrem neuen Buch erzählt Samantha über ihre Ausbildung zur Astronautin und schildert einige Ihrer Eindrücke auf der Mission. Einen kleinen Teil davon erzählt sie uns in dieser Episode.

330 – Parabolic Flights at AirZeroG

When I was in Bordeaux with the DLR to report about their science campaign in September, I also talked to the team from AirZeroG/Novespace about the technical and aviation aspects of parabolic flights. These interviews are in this episode. I chat with Jean-François Clervoy about the history of the company, with Eric Delesalle about piloting the parabolas, with Hervé Normand about the reasons for the potential sickness, and with Nicolas Barbotin about cabin safety. At the end of the episode I also provide some details about the technical problem that prevented parabolas during my own flight with the A-310 ZeroG.

329 – Forschung in Schwerelosigkeit – DLR Parabelflüge

Im September habe ich das DLR (und ungefähr 100 Wissenschaftler) bei der 34. Parabelflug-Kampagne bei Novespace/AirZeroG in Bordeaux begleitet. In dieser Episode unterhalte ich mich mit der DLR-Programmleiterin Katrin Stang, dem Astronauten Matthias Maurer, sowie sechs Wissenschaftler(teams) aus den Gebieten Biologie & Medizin, Physik, Materialwissenschaften und Enginering/Robotik. In der nächsten Episode besprechen wir die fliegerischen Aspekte der Parabelfliegerei.

328 – Flying the P-3 Orion (and some other aircraft)

Marija Jovanovich is a pilot for the Royal Australian Air Force where she has been flying the P-3 Orion. We discuss the aircraft, the missions, and some anecdotes. Marija then also attended the USAF Experimental Test Pilot School, and we talk a bit about the experience of flying a wide range of different aircraft.

Im August war ich in der Eifel und habe dort das 100m-Radioteleskop in Effelsberg besucht. Mit meinem Gast(geber) Norbert Junkes spreche ich über Konstruktion, Funktionsweise und Einbindung in VLBI-Interferometer.

326 – Weather Forecasting at the ECMWF

Earlier this year I visited the European Center for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts, a European organization that produces global weather forecasts and performs research on how to improve those. The episode has three parts. First, Hilda Carr gives us an overview of the organization, its purpose and its history. Then I talk with Peter Bauer about weather and climate modeling and about encoding these models efficiently in software programs that run on supercomputers. Part three is a conversation with Tony McNally about where the ECMWF gets its data and how it is continuously fed into the "running" model.

325 – Der Wald im Nationalpark Hainich

Im Juni 2019 war ich im Nationalpark Hainich in Thüringen und habe dort mit dessen Leiter, Manfred Großmann, gesprochen. Es geht um die ursprüngliche Bewaldung Deutschlands und Europas und um die langsame Verwandlung des Hainichs zurück in einen Urwald. Bei einem Spaziergang durch den Wald sprechen wir über einzelne Pflanzen und Tiere und das Ökosystem.
