These are four summary articles on selected topics already discussed by the author in his previous books edited by Deutscher Wissenschafts-Verlag (DWV) Baden-Baden [1], [2], [3].
The final article of this booklet reports on the ‘Conference of Nobel Laureates meeting students in 2010’. This multi-national event of outstanding academics is most appreciated worldwide and traditionally takes place at the City of Lindau in Lake of Constance once a year. Particularly, however, the author discusses in the first article his alternative approach on 'The New Physics of Cosmic Red Shift', which possibly changes our views as to the origin and frontiers of the Cosmos. In the two other articles, about 'Life versus Entropy' and on 'Functional Physics of Life', the author summarizes his conclusions from innumerable high level scientific meetings and research workshops partly supported by the EU Commission over the period 1985–2010, in favor of the advancement of knowledge especially in the fields of molecular biology, living molecular systems and the origin of life on earth [4].

Wolfgang Hebel, geb. 1934 in Duisburg, verheiratet, zwei Kinder, Diplom-Ingenieur Maschinenbau (Wärmetechnik, Kerntechnik), war zwischen 1959 und 1963 bei den LURGI-Gesellschaften, Frankfurt/M., von 1963 bis 1980 beim EURATOM-Nuclear Research Center, Mol/Belgien, und von 1981 bis 1986 bei der Europäischen Kommission in der Generaldirektion Forschung in Brüssel tätig (Bewirtschaftung radioaktiver Abfälle). Von 1986 bis 1996 war er in der Generaldirektion Forschung für die Vorbereitung neuer EU-Forschungsaktionen zuständig. 1996 wurde Wolfgang Hebel in den Ruhestand versetzt. Er lebt heute in Tervuren bei Brüssel.

Wolfgang Hebel ist Verfasser wissenschaftlicher Studien und Texte und nimmt an zahlreichen wissenschaftlichen Konferenzen teil (u.a. Nobelpreisträgertreffen in Lindau im Bodensee). Von ihm stammen 30 Veröffentlichungen: Artikel in Zeitschriften und EU-Forschungsberichte, anfänglich im Bereich der Kernforschung, später über Entwicklungen in der Grundlagenforschung.

The author Wolfgang Hebel was born in Duisburg, Germany, 1934. He is married to Eleonore Schilling from the historical town of Mainz. After his studies of ‘Thermodynamics and Nuclear Engineering’ at the Technical University Darmstadt, Germany (1959), he had been engaged as Diplom-Ingenieur by the LURGI Company (Subsidiary company of Metallgesellschaft) in Frankfurt/Main, from 1959–1963. He joined EURATOM research in 1963, and became a leading engineer at the Belgian Nuclear Research Center (CEN-SCK) at Mol (Province Antwerp) for the common use of the high flux test reactor BR-2 to the benefit of EU nuclear research activities (1963–1980). In 1981, he moved to the EU headquarters in Brussels and worked with the Research Directorate of the European Commission, first in charge of actions of the EU nuclear waste management program. Thereafter, he had been responsible for the preparation of new research initiatives of the EU Commission into fundamental research, from 1985–1996. Wolfgang Hebel published more than 40 scientific reports and research studies, initially in the field of nuclear research and later on trends of fundamental research, particularly in the area of molecular biophysical chemistry and the molecular processes of living organisms.
