Exhibition "50 Jahre GSI – Lieblingsbilder und Erinnerungen"

The anniversary celebrations included two very special activities: On the one hand, the ten favorite photos from five decades of GSI history were chosen. On the other hand, the current and former employees had the opportunity to submit their personal memories of their time at GSI as a short story. The results can now be seen in the public exhibition "50 Jahre GSI – Lieblingsbilder und Erinnerungen". Please note: The content will be displayed in German.

The exhibition will take place in the foyer of the Konferenz- und Bürogebäude West (KBW) on the GSI/FAIR Campus, Planckstraße 1, 64291 Darmstadt, Germany, and will be open from November 15 to December 20, 2019 from Monday to Friday between 10 am and 4 pm. External guests are requested to bring an identification document with them for admission to the campus.

Anniversary program of the public lecture series "Wissenschaft für Alle"

Not only GSI celebrates 50 years of existence, also the periodic table of the elements has its 150th birthday. Hence, our anniversary program of the public lectures series "Wissenschaft für Alle" in the year 2019 focuses on the periodic table and the six elements discovered at GSI with a talk for each one of them. A contribution on the hitherto achieved scientific highlights of GSI is also an integral part. Further information can be found on the website of "Wissenschaft für Alle" (German only).
