Schwerkraft leicht gemacht


von Hermann Heisig and Nuno Lucas

Age 9 and over / Year 4 and above

At some point in our lives. we’ve all wished that we could fly.

In ‘Schwerkraft leicht gemacht’, Hermann Heisig gives it a try, recklessly exposing himself to gravity in different ways. His body becomes a test object for material properties, resistance and vibration.
In a series of ludicrous self-experiments, he fires himself up, exposes himself to centrifugal forces, falls down, gets back up again and attempts to fly with the help of magical incantations that he has composed himself.

Having wrestled ferociously with mass, strength, space and time, he finally gets the opportunity to go into space …
