“The most worthwhile research is that which both delights the thinker and serves humanity.”
Christian Doppler

What do airplanes, fast cars, red blood cells, beating hearts, gasses in sealed pipes and the stars in the sky have in common?
Their speed is measured thanks to a physical principle discovered by the world famous Salzburg scientist, Christian Doppler. Even in his wildest dreams, this visionary could never have imagined the importance his discovery would have for all of humanity. His idea, the Doppler effect (1842) plays a fundamental role in almost all areas of our lives.
