Wikipedia: Schoppen

Im deutschsprachigen Raum umfasste der Schoppen im 19. Jahrhundert in Baden und der Schweiz 0,375 Liter, in Württemberg 0,459 Liter und in der Pfalz 0,564 Liter. Vor der von Napoleon veranlassten, im Frühjahr 1812 durchgeführten Vereinheitlichung der Maße in den Staaten des Rheinbunds, entsprach der Schoppen 0,7 Liter. In der Stadt Rastatt hatte der Schoppen im Jahr 1615 noch 2,3 Liter, was damals eines der größten Weinmaße in Deutschland war.

Sky Lights: How We Knew Space Was a Vacuum (2021)

But if you’re looking for “absolute proof” it was in the mid-1940s when Germany fired V-2 rockets across the English Channel from Peenemünde. These rockets were the first to reach outer space (top graphic). Near the apex of their flight they were observed to move along a ballistic trajectory — motion in which gravity is the sole acting force. Ballistic motion can only happen in a vacuum.

Universität Göttingen

Privatdozent: The Mathematical Center of the Universe (2021)

The inception of quantum mechanics can essentially be traced back to a single “Golden Age” in the mid-1920s at one university: the Georg-August University of Göttingen, in the city of Göttingen, Germany. Home to many notable scientists, the university is associated with no less than 45 Nobel Prize winners. Included in this group are many of the figures responsible for the creation of quantum mechanics, such as Max Born, Werner Heisenberg, James Franck, Wolfgang Pauli, Eugene Winer, Paul Dirac, Enrico Fermi and J. Robert Oppenheimer.
