Ludwig van Beethoven’s work is legendary – and already was while he was still alive. He is famous around the world, and yet little is known about the conditions under which his music was composed.

How is that possible?

Almost 200 years after Beethoven’s death, “The Beethoven Files” casts light of one of the...

Scattered around the coasts of the world are ticking time bombs, so far virtually unknown to the public; 6,300 wrecks, sunk in the Second World War, have been rusting away in the sea for over 70 years.

In 1989, the tanker Exxon Valdez ran aground off Alaska, polluting the coast with 37,000 tonnes of leaked crude oil. That’s just a fraction of what’s assumed to lie in the wartime wrecks. Researchers estimate...

Low reproductive output further endangers their survival. In 2000, the Cat Ba Langur Conservation Project was started. Since then, for the first time in decades the population of the langurs has increased. Former...

Earthquake prediction is perhaps the greatest failure of modern science. Geologists use sophisticated instruments to study seismic activity but they still are nowhere near to a prediction. Some scientists have taken a different approach. Studying snakes, toads and dogs, they have noticed peculiar behaviour just days before an earthquake strikes. Could this observation help predict earthquakes in the future?

At the Nanning Earthquake Bureau in China, researchers are convinced that constantly...
