He then worked as a freelance writer for the online editorial team of the WDR and later travelled a lot for film projects around the world. In these travels, he researched the price differences for everyday products in various locations, and hoped there was a networked platform in which one could enter product prices for users worldwide. Therefore, together with friends, he founded the website Eardex , a kind of Wiki for prices in all cities, regions and countries of the world.

Youtube and Vimeo: with special focus on moving images on the video channels of DLR. As an online editor at DLR, he is now to provide the public an insight into the world of aerospace, aviation, energy and transport. He is also responsible for other social media channels of the German Aerospace Center: Facebook, Twitter, Google+, Flickr and Vine.

Blogger und Social-Media-Nutzer: Einladung zur Inbetriebnahme des Rosetta-Landers Philae in Köln am 28. März

Die Mission Rosetta der Europäischen Weltraumorganisation ESA soll die Entstehungsgeschichte unseres Sonnensystems erforschen. Dazu untersucht sie den Kometen 67P/Churyumov-Gerasimenko, einen der ältesten und ursprünglichsten Himmelskörper. Die Mission besteht aus dem Orbiter Rosetta und der Landeeinheit Philae. Das Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt (DLR) hatte wesentliche Anteile beim Bau des Landers und betreibt das Lander-Kontrollzentrum in Köln, das die schwierige und bisher noch nie gewagte Landung auf dem Kometen vorbereitet und betreuen wird. read more
