CHemistry of life

The invisible inside


Chemistry of Life

The invisible within us

With live-section

Sometimes it's the smallest things that matter the most. Join us on a journey into a seemingly invisible world – the world of molecules and nanoparticles. What does the cell structure of a leaf look like? What might the neural network in our brain be like and how do cells communicate with each other? Where do the heavy elements in the cosmos come from and what role do the stars play here?

Modern scientific visualisations provide an insight into how biochemical processes take place at the molecular level, how they connect us with all other living things on Earth and what their cosmic origin is. In »Chemistry of Life« we embark on an extraordinary journey into our »inner universe«.
