How bombardier beetles bomb

a lecture in English

For as long as researchers have been studying the bombardier beetle they have been baffled by their ability to produce an internal explosion in their abdomen and then expel a jet of boiling, irritating liquid towards their attackers while avoiding any physical damage. Now a team of researchers at MIT, the University of Arizona, and Brookhaven Laboratory have solved the conundrum. (Learn more: http://bit.ly/1GJygo0)

Using high-speed synchrotron X-ray imaging the researchers were able to "see" the inside of the abdomens of living bombardier beetles during explosions.

Alt und kriminell: Deutsche Rentner hinter Gittern

In deutschen Gefängnissen wächst die Zahl der hochbetagten Insassen. Die Tatsache, dass Menschen immer älter werden, heißt eben auch, dass Verbrecher immer älter werden. Dazu kommt, dass so mancher seine kriminelle Ader erst im Alter entdeckt. SPIEGEL TV hat mit Männern gesprochen, die gemordet und geraubt haben und dafür möglicherweise bis an ihr Lebensende einsitzen müssen.

7 Tage unter Roadies (Reportage)

a report in German

"Wenn du nach vier Wochen auf Tour auf 'ner Autobahnraststätte rausgeschmissen wirst, nur um direkt in einen anderen Bus einzusteigen, um drei Wochen bei der nächsten Band mitzufahren, dann fragst du dich schon manchmal, warum du dir das eigentlich antust", sagt Markus und zieht an seiner Zigarette. "Klar ist das ein Knochenjob. Den Druck hält auch nicht jeder aus. Ich kenne Kollegen, die haben sich umgebracht."
Viel Arbeit und wenig Schlaf

Bands werden von ihren Fans gefeiert, bejubelt und geliebt. Doch hinter der Bühne schuftet eine ganze Crew, damit die Stars auf der Bühne glänzen können. Warum tun sich die Roadies das an? Wenig schlafen, schwer schleppen, nie zuhause - und den Applaus bekommt die Band.

Für sieben Tage sind die NDR Autoren Tobias Lickes und Johanna Leuschen auf Tour mit der Band "Jupiter Jones" und ihrer Crew. Zusammen mit den Roadies schleppen sie die Ausrüstung auf die Bühne, schlagen sich die Nächte im Tourbus um die Ohren und erleben das Leben Backstage.
