An open day and there is a fire?

08.09.2009
Certainly. And a rather violent one. And all this for Safety in Engineering and Chemical Technology.

And the visitors, who would like to see us from above, go up - in a helicopter!

Open day
9 September 2009
13:00 to 22:00 hours
Test Site 'Technical Safety'
An der Düne 44
15837 Baruth/Mark, Horstwalde
BAM Test Site Technical Safety was awarded the title 'Selected place in the Land of Ideas 2009' by the Germany - The Land of Ideas Initiative and Deutsche Bank. On the 9th of September 2009 BAM will open the test site to visitors on the occasion of the presentation of the award!

BAM has a lot to show: For example the largest Drop test facility in the world. A 10,000-kg container for light and medium radioactive wastes will be dropped from a height of 5 metres. This Drop test is part of the prototype test for the final storage facility Konrad.

Our programme will be multifaceted and exciting:

- a car accident including a fire scenario will be simulated

- the fire-accelerating effect of pure oxygen will be shown using a model doll and

- the ignition and transformation of coal dust into a fire ball will be demonstrated.

And much more. Our partners' programme is equally spectacular:

- Linde Gas Deutschland will show 'HydroGen4' with hydrogen propulsion (the European version of Chevrolet Equinox Fuel Cell) and the mobile petrol station 'trailH2-Gas'.

- BAM's test site from below and above: the Promotion Association of Test Traffic Facility Horstwalde organises Offroad tours for visitors. And for those who always wanted to fly in a helicopter, inexpensive Helicopter flights will be offered.

- Work of art from sound and light: fireworks composed by pyro artist Hans-Georg Kehse will close this special day.

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
