German Science and Inventions have shaped our world

German inventions have changed the world. When we celebrate Christmas we decorate a Christmas tree and are singing 'Silent night, holy night' ('Stille Nacht, Heilige Nacht") and when we are thirsty we enjoy German beer. But that is not all!
The list of German inventions is very extensive and we wonder what the world would be without Albert Einstein the greatest mind of all times and the German rocket scientist Wernher von Braun who was responsible for the development of the first satellite "Explorer I" and for the Saturn-Rocket and in the 60's he was the leader of the NASA Apollo-Moon-Mission.

Again, the world took note of the German discovery by Otto Hahn the "father of nuclear chemistry" and the "founder of the atomic age" when he received the Nobel Prize for nuclear fusion by splitting an atom.
However, German inventions have surely lengthened our life expectancy and have contributed to a pain free life style for many. One of the famous German inventors -in the forefront of the medical field- was the physicist Wilhelm Conrad Roentgen, he discovered the X-rays and Felix Hoffmann in 1897 invented Aspirin the salicylic acid- pain killer as well as the perfect pill against heart attacks and strokes. Furthermore, the German invention of the "wonder pill" or contraceptive pill, gave women the freedom they never experienced before; and also the first scientific pregnancy test was invented by Selmar Aschheim.

Other German inventions prolonged our life when Robert Koch (1870) discovered bacteria causing infections and the discovery of the tuberculosis bacillus in 1882 ensured his place in history..
One of the more present German inventions in Medicare is the non invasive healing methods with pulsed magnetic fields. The physicist Dr.Wolfgang Ludwig from Germany is known as the absolute authority or as "the father" of pulsed magnetic therapy. He developed the first handheld magnetic pulser (1974) for his mother which suffered from severe migraines. Years later, an improved version resulted in the Bio Medici magnetic pulser, which can treat over sixty health applications. The invention was revolutionary since it surpassed by far the effects of medical magnets. The application of pulsed magnetic fields is completely pain free and has no side effects. One can say that this German invention contributed definitely to be one of the most amazing ways to counteract pain and disease, direct at the source without the use of dangerous chemical drugs, which can stop only the symptoms.
Our extensive testimonial collection gives the interested reader an insight about the positive effects of the magnetic pulser, in pain applications as well as a valuable medium for rejuvenation and immune system reinforcement.

Our TV, which we enjoy each day, was invented by Manfred von Ardenne in 1930. The invention of the gas motor by Nikolaus August Otto (1832-1860) and then followed the first car invention by the two German Inventors Karl Benz and Gottlieb Daimler who gave the world a new course. And again, the German invention of the air bag was installed for the first time (1981) into the Mercedes Benz "S-Class" version.
Another German invention was the Diesel motor by Rudolf Diesel in 1885. This motor was a variation of the Otto motor but much more fuel efficient and run without the use of spark plugs.

The invention of the helicopter goes back to 1936 by the German Heinrich Focke who designed the first usable helicopter. Hans von Ohain patented and developed in 1936 the concept of a jet propulsion system which was the first aircraft (Henkel He 178) to fly under turbojet power. Ohain's development changed aviation fundamentally.

One of the most important German inventions was the printing press invented by Johannes Gutenberg in 1440. This invention was the cornerstone for further developments the world needed to progress in science, technology, medicine, arts and religion. Gutenberg, a goldsmith and business man, borrowed money to build the first printing press in the world with replaceable and movable wooden or metal letters.

Other German inventions accompany us within our daily lives, varying from high tech to the mundane, such as the toothpaste invented by Ottomar Heinsius in 1907 and the Gummy Bear by Hans Riegel in 1922. Other products we use daily are the blue jeans by Levi Strauss, Adidas, Nivea, Hellmann's Mayonnaise, Heinz Ketchup, the chip card, computers, contact lenses, Ecoflex Plastic, Glider, Geiger Counter, Globe, Kindergarten, MP3 Format, Nylon Plug, radio controlled watch, Record Player and Scanner and much more!

The "Ho 229A" was the first flying wing fighter/bomber powered by two jet engines. The first prototype was developed from Walter and Reimar Horten in 1933. The aircraft incorporated what was known as stealth technology to be more difficult to detect with radar.
Maximum speed: 977 km/h (625 miles/h). Range: 1000 km (625 miles) with full payload of 2312 kg (5097 lb). Climbing rate: 22 m/s (4,330 ft/min).
The Horten brothers developed in 1933 the the first stealth wing fighter/bomber
