  1. Heinrich Hertz did his experiments uncovering the electromagnetic waves in Karlsruhe, a city in the southern part of Germany where now the University Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, KIT for short is located. Without Hertz there would be no radio, tv and cellphones. And Otto Lehman, his successor after Hertz death at far too young age of 36, did explore the liquid crystals in Karlsruhe. Imagine a cellphone, computer monitor or LCD tv without them.
    So Im proud I could do my studies there when Julius Wess did teach theoretical physics. But this will be another story, especially once they will find some SUSY particles at the LHC at CERN in Switzerland.
