HEY-WATCH OUT − It`'s the anthropocene! — #6 Ice Investigations
Ice equals energy. How much energy (KJ) does ice require in order to freeze or melt and how can we use this energy? In the workshop with Markus Jeschaunig we built a autochthonous cooling installation with homemade ice. Experiments that try to decrease the melting temperature will test the efficiency of ice as an energy resource.
