SciencEscape operates in collaboration with various research institutions, tackling specific themes and projects. Simultaneously, we independently develop our own documentary projects, which form the core of our mission. This approach allows us to focus on topics that are particularly meaningful to us and bring them to life according to our vision, aiming to share knowledge with a broad audience, always free of charge. Below, you will find a list of our past projects.
The faults of the Kilauea
We followed the Prof. Jöel Ruch and his team on their exceptional scientific mission on Big Island, Hawai. Their discoveries on how the magma propagate within the Earth through networks of faults and fractures carry critical implications for public safety.
The folds throughout time
Through the interview of Swiss geologists, this video traces the first discoveries and theories, the rivalries between the great spirits of the time, the link between the understanding of the Alps, and the discovery of continental drift theory.
Archosaurs in Emosson
In 1976, at 2400 m in the Swiss Alps, scientists discovered footprints from 240 million years ago. Dr Tamara El Hossny and Dr. Lionel Cavin from the Natural History Museum of Geneva present the animals who left these traces and why they are visible today.
Treasures of Lebanon
Since the 19th century, Lebanese and Swiss authorities have studied the exceptional fossiliferous site of Haqel, that holds the keys to understand the evolution of life on Earth. Pierre Abi-Saad and his family, fossil hunters for three generations, share their excavation work.
In March 2021, the Earth started to rumble on the Reykjanes peninsula in Iceland. A team of volcanologists of the University of Geneva was quickly dispatched to the site to anticipate the forthcoming eruption and the future exit point of the magma.
La Palma eruption
Shortly after the eruption of the Cumbre Vieja on la Palma in 2021, a team of volcanologists of the University of Geneva went to the scene. With the local emergency response team of INVOLCAN, they had one purpose: how will it evolve and what are the risks?
Future of Swiss glaciers
Glaciers are essential for biodiversity and climate as well as provide in places critical freshwater resources. As climate changes drive rapid warming, a team of the University of Lausanne tracks glacial dynamics and outflow with new technologies.
Geothermal energy in Europe
Powering tomorrow, sustainably today, geothermal energy is key to achieve carbon neutrality. Michel Meyer, manager within the Services Industriels de Genève, presents the solutions and limitations of this resource both in Switzerland and France.
