A small movie, showing pattern formation. This was produced for the open day of the university 1999 and aims to impress non-scientists. The head which forms is the portrait of Otto von Guericke, Mayor of Magdeburg, who first demonstrated the effect of air pressure via 2 evacuated half-spheres made from iron. The portrait is the seal of the University of Magdeburg. It also demonstrates the versatility of our program.
