Chemical analyzes confirm the use of poison gas

The story was

The whole world reacted with dismay when after the liberation in 1945 the stories of the German extermination camps surfaced. Historians and laymen are still trying to find out who exactly knew what.

Millions of people were killed in outright murder factories. Children, adults and the elderly were pushed naked into the gas chambers, poisoned and finally cremated in super-efficient ovens.

Auschwitz in Poland became the symbol of destruction. We know what happened from the survivors, German soldiers, documents and from the Soviets who relieved the camp in January 1945. Yet people later doubted about the existence of the camps and about the real extent of the crimes.

Archaeologists say now

Archaeologists have refuted claims by Auschwitz deniers. The most persistent - that the poison Zyklon B was not used in the camp - was investigated by analyzing wall samples from the gas chambers.

According to deniers, bluish acid (the active substance in Zyklon B) would have left blue traces on the walls, but chemical analyzes negate this. The gas was in the gas chamber for 30 minutes at most: too little to form deposits. In addition, the walls were cleaned of blood, urine and stools after each destruction.

Deniers also dispute that the poison gas was poured through the roof of the gas chambers, even though several SS men explained the procedure. Archaeological research confirms the existence of the holes in the concrete roof, surrounded by reinforced iron. And they can also be seen on photos from 1943 and 1944.

Hitler's death camps are still being investigated. Recently the archaeologists found with radar mass graves from camp Treblinka in Poland, with thousands of bodies.

Physics is no longer up to date

1. Zwaartekrachtgolven reconstrueren het heden Om 5.51 uur ontdekten de natuurkundigen van de LIGO-detectoren in de VS dat de hele aarde trilde. Niemand anders merkte daar iets van, want de 'aardbeving' was zo zwak dat de spiegels van de detector slechts een atoombreed verschoven. Maar het was voldoende om een verschuiving te registreren van het laserlicht dat continu naar de spiegels wordt gestuurd en daarna naar de detectoren wordt teruggekaatst.

Einstein warps the entire universe

Although Einstein has influenced the entire 20th-century physics with his four articles and has already obtained his PhD, the scientific jobs are still not there for the taking. He can't even get to work in high school, but the patent office gives him a big pay rise and promotes him from third to second-class technical expert.

Genie changes time and distance

While his contemporaries hopping around and playing tag or throwing a ball, a slender boy with a dark appearance sits at home, in a suburb of Munich, Germany, over thick books. Family members think he is a boring person, and Albert Einstein loves daydreaming, reading and playing the violin much more than climbing a tree.

Einstein's theory of relativity changed physics

Einstein's theory of relativity explains physical paradoxes Einstein's theory of relativity consists of two parts: the special theory of relativity from 1905 and the general theory of relativity from 1915. In the mid-19th century natural phenomena were discovered that were contrary to Newton's law of gravity, which until then physics.
