Gauss Tips

Here they are: The fresh weekly Gauss tips from December 30th, 2020 to January 12th, 2021

Online performance: Ballet – The Nutcracker – available from now until March.

A Christmas classic: on Christmas Eve, a young girl dreams she stumbles into a magical adventure when she is given an enchanted Nutcracker as a gift. Can she break the spell that turned a boy into a toy?

The Ballet Company of the National Opera of Ukraine’s production of The Nutcracker has captured the hearts of young and old around the world. Behind the charming narrative that captures the festive mood is a journey from childhood to adulthood full of virtuosity. And all this to Tchaikovsky’s unmistakably magnificent music.

Watching the recording is free and available around the clock. The performance can be found here.

It starts at 9 a.m. German time, when the year 2021 begins on the Line Islands. This will be followed by music from Samoa, Australia, Korea, Myanmar, India, Iran, Tanzania, France, Brazil, New York, Alaska and Baker Island, among others.

Online lecture: Scientists 4 Future: electric cars – climate sinners or climate savers? – January 12th 2021, 6:30 p.m. – 8 p.m.

Electric cars – climate sinners or climate savers? An online lecture with discussion by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Christoph Herrmann. Electric mobility and electric vehicles are repeatedly the focus of public criticism because they are at least as harmful to the environment as conventional combustion vehicles. In particular, the production of the battery ensures that e-vehicles start their life cycle with a larger CO2 backpack than conventional cars. However, to ensure a fair comparison, a holistic ecological approach is required. This presentation will highlight problem areas, challenges, but also environmental opportunities of electric mobility and show why electric vehicles are an important part of sustainable mobility in the future.

Participation is free of charge, more information and the link to the event can be found here.
