Man on the Moon Made Possible by German Technology

Fifty years ago, on July 21st, 1969, US Astronauts Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin landed on the moon. Germany had quite the role to play, with several key scientists and engineers either coming from Germany or with German heritage and a slew of German companies contributing parts to Apollo 11, like Heraeus, which produced the quartz glass used to measure the exact distance from the Earth to the moon.

Snacking On the Go

Street food and snacking is more than currywurst and doener! Mobile snacking options have come a long way from medieval market carts. As rules regarding appropriate meal times relaxed, food became more abundant, and people sought places to enjoy time and company outside of work and home, the taste for on-the-go snacking expanded into the diverse array of options available in Germany today.
