The bilingual illustrated book "The Art of Science at GSI and FAIR"
A new illustrated book shows research at GSI and FAIR from the perspective of art and design. The network of Urban Sketchers Rhein-Main and students of the Hochschule für Gestaltung in Offenbach visited GSI and FAIR and developed their individual views on the experimental facilities and the scientific topics and reproduced them in pictures. The multitude of fascinating drawings and sketches can now be admired in an illustrated book published by GSI/FAIR. The bilingual illustrated book is…

Professor Albrecht Beutelspacher
The lecture series “Wissenschaft für Alle” by GSI and FAIR will continue in online format in the second half of 2021. Interested parties can join the videoconferences via a dial-in link using a web-enabled device such as a laptop, smartphone or tablet. The program begins on Wednesday, September 15, 2021, with a talk about the number pi by Professor Albrecht Beutelspacher, Director of the Mathematikum in Gießen.

For the first time, physicists have succeeded in successfully realizing a new method for cooling protons using laser-cooled ions - in this case beryllium ions. The innovative feature of the new system is that the two particle types are located in spatially separated traps. This means it is now possible to provide the cooling effect with the help of an electrical resonant circuit over a distance of nine centimeters from one trap to the other. The team at the PRISMA+ Cluster of Excellence at…

[Translate to English:]
The GSI Helmholtz Centre was a successful co-applicant to fund a consortium of the National Research Data Infrastructure (NFDI). Under this program, a consortium with strong GSI participation will be funded for the next five years. This was announced by the Join Science Conference (GWK) of the German federal and state governments at its meeting in July.

At the linear accelerator UNILAC
The member of the Bundestag Daniela Wagner (Bündnis 90/Die Grünen) recently informed herself about the scientific activities at GSI/FAIR and the progress of the future accelerator center FAIR, which is currently being built at GSI. During the information visit as part of her summer tour, Daniela Wagner was accompanied by Nina Eisenhardt, member of the Hessian parliament, and Andreas Ewald, chairperson of the Darmstadt city council fraction (both Bündnis90/Die Grünen).
