German science show, I understood. How???

January 11, 2011 · Posted in abundance 

When I turned on the TV an episode of Alpha Centauri science program I was amazed that I understood the basics of the lecture given in German. I’ve never formally studied German and only know what I’ve picked up from studying music theory and a little bit from my Dad teaching me how to count. This show was talking about the Tunguska meteor event and the amount of energy from the event relative to the bomb dropped on Hiroshima. Watch it and see how much you can understand, especially if German is not your native language.
