The Nobel Prize has been awarded since 1901 for exceptionally significant research results in the subjects of physics, chemistry and physiology or medicine. Behind every honor are not only revolutionary scientific discoveries, but also special research personalities and not infrequently emotional stories of discovery. In the ARD alpha – series “Anderl meets Nobel Laureates”, produced by Peider A. Defilla and B.O.A. Videofilmkunst, Sibylle Anderl talked about all this with some laureates during this year’s Lindau Online Science Days. In three broadcasts, she introduces U.S. physician Elizabeth Blackburn, physicists Brian Schmidt and Barry Barish and their groundbreaking scientific discoveries.
