Cover Story MEASURable:

Dr. Michael Fübi: Is absolutely everything measurable?

Measurement is a prerequisite for technical and social progress. But isn’t it presumptuous to believe that we can measure and finally understand everything?

Key life measurements

Assistant Professor Dr. Axel Nothnagel, Geodetic Institute of the University of Bonn, examines the time data of the earth’s rotation and explains why we always keep our orientation (p. 4).

Happiness researcher Professor Dr. Michaela Brohm-Badry is convinced that following a drastic experience, people are happier than before (p. 12).

Professor Dr. Volker Schürmann from the German Sport University Cologne finds it foolhardy to intervene medically in the human body to achieve equality of results in sport (p. 20).

Man under the magnifying glass

The fifth generation

5G aims to connect the whole world and advance digitization. But what can 5G really do? Who benefits from the new standard? And what impact will it have?
