New IPCC report emphasizes the urgency to act

Largest clarion bell from the science community

On Mon­day, Octo­ber 8, the ground­break­ing cli­mate change report by the Inter­gov­ern­men­tal Panel on Cli­mate change IPCC was released, the new report being the most impor­tant cli­mate change report ever. It is overly alarm­ing and shows that we actu­ally have no time to waste.

First cosmic discovery in both gravitational waves and light

A ground­break­ing announce­ment was made on 16th of Octo­ber by the LIGO Sci­en­tific Col­lab­o­ra­tion, Virgo Col­lab­o­ra­tion, and its part­ners. For the very first time, both grav­i­ta­tional waves and elec­tro­mag­netic waves have been observed from the same cos­mic event, the inspi­ral and col­li­sion of two neu­tron stars.

Ebook Editions


Sci­ence­Quest pub­lishes eBooks on a reg­u­lar basis.

Our eBooks are avail­able at Ama­zon® as Ama­zon Kin­dle® edi­tions in Eng­lish and Ger­man.

Each edi­tion is accom­pa­nied by our Blog and the reader will be pro­vided with addi­tional infor­ma­tion and lat­est news for each sub­ject.



Science­Quest is a sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion project to present chal­leng­ing sci­ence to the layper­son and non-​expert.

At the begin­ning of all sci­ence, there is an idea born from our mind dri­ven solely by visions and imag­i­na­tions. Or cit­ing Albert Ein­stein*:
"Most of the fun­da­men­tal ideas of sci­ence are essen­tially sim­ple, and may, as a rule, be expressed in a lan­guage com­pre­hen­si­ble to every­one."

This is what sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion is about, explain­ing sci­ence in an easy under­stand­able and fas­ci­nat­ing way, pro­vid­ing you with the con­fi­dence that your imag­i­na­tion and curios­ity are most impor­tant and not your knowl­edge is your limit.

The sci­ence of our times is mostly the result of col­lab­o­ra­tions of many sci­en­tists and a com­bi­na­tion of many sci­en­tific fields. Sci­ence has become a social event.

The pub­lic inter­est in sci­ence is big­ger than ever, as well as the faith that sci­ence could solve some of the most press­ing prob­lems of our times. Com­mu­ni­cat­ing sci­ence to a wide pub­lic audi­ence has become just as impor­tant as the com­mu­ni­ca­tion in the lan­guage of sci­ence between experts only.

Mak­ing sci­ence com­pre­hen­si­ble to every­one often results in reduc­ing the sub­ject to the spec­tac­u­lar facts, which doesn’t live up to the fas­ci­nat­ing details of the under­ly­ing sci­ence. Not least because of the com­plex­ity of mod­ern sci­ence, sci­ence com­mu­ni­ca­tion is not only telling peo­ple about, but also teach­ing peo­ple sci­ence, whereby any sci­en­tific field requires a cer­tain amount of back­ground knowl­edge and basics.

We at Sci­ence­Quest want to pro­vide you with a detailed and work­ing

knowl­edge of dif­fer­ent fields of sci­ence, which might inspire your imag­i­na­tion and moti­vate you to go fur­ther on.

I have no spe­cial tal­ents, I am only pas­sion­ately curi­ous.- Albert Ein­stein

The Sci­ence­Quest project includes also eBooks appear­ing on a reg­u­lar basis in Eng­lish and Ger­man. All eBooks will be avail­able at a very low and afford­able price. This reflects our phi­los­o­phy that learn­ing should not be a mat­ter of costs and knowl­edge is for every­one.

Sci­ence­Quest is a project by physi­cist and sci­ence jour­nal­ist Bet­tina Roselt and physi­cist Axel Ewers.
