Congratulations to Dr. Jaroslav Panasenko! He was honored with the prestigious industry award "Silicon Science Award" of the CiS Research Institute for Microsensor Technology for his doctoral thesis at the Physics Institute of the University of Tübingen and within the CBM (Compressed Baryonic Matter) experiment. Panasenko wrote the doctoral thesis in the working group "Nuclear Matter under Extreme Conditions" headed by Professor Hans Rudolf Schmidt.

Information booth at the Luisencenter.
On the occasion of the birthday date of the chemical element Darmstadtium, GSI/FAIR presented themselves from November 7 to 9, 2023, with an information booth at the Luisencenter shopping mall in the heart of Darmstadt. The interest was immense and the booth was very well visited on all three days. Two hands-on experiments awaited the guests of all ages, who were able to playfully experience the acceleration process and the fusion of two elements into a new one. Employees were available for…

An outstanding scientific publication by GSI researchers was prominently featured as a highlight article by the renowned online publication "Physics Magazine" of the American Physical Society APS. The deputy research director of GSI and FAIR and head of the Helmholtz Institute Jena, Professor Thomas Stöhlker, is one of the four authors.

Booth at the Start-up & Innovation Day
GSI and FAIR presented themselves with a booth at the Start-up & Innovation Day 2023, organized by the Technical University of Darmstadt in cooperation with the innovation and start-up center HIGHEST. The day attracted more than 1,700 visitors from the fields of science, economy, society and politics to the congress center “darmstadtium”. With around 100 exhibition booths, the event is increasingly establishing itself as a start-up and innovation event for the Rhine-Main-Neckar region.

Virtual Reality
Under the motto “Where does the Internet live?!” twenty data center operators throughout Germany invited to the Open Data Center Day (Tag der offenen Rechenzentren, TdoRZ) on September 29, 2023. The high-performance data center Green IT Cube of GSI/FAIR also participated in the event and welcomed interested people as well as a school class.

The FDP member of the Hessian Parliament Moritz Promny recently visited GSI and FAIR together with Lisa Deißler, also FDP member of the Hessian Parliament. They were welcomed by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, Markus Jaeger, Deputy Administrative Managing Directorate GSI and FAIR, and Jutta Leroudier from the Public Relations Department.

Artist's impression of a kilonova: two neutron stars at the moment of their merger.
An advanced new three-dimensional (3D) computer simulation of the light emitted following a merger of two neutron stars has produced a similar sequence of spectroscopic features to an observed kilonova. "The unprecedented agreement between our simulations and the observation of kilonova AT2017gfo indicates that we understand broadly what has taken place in the explosion and aftermath," says Luke J. Shingles, scientist at GSI/FAIR and the leading author of the publication in...

The Outer Tracker has arrived at GSI/FAIR and is being unloaded
The decommissioned outer tracker of CERN’s LHCb experiment embarked on a one-week journey to FAIR in Darmstadt, Germany, where it will be used by the PANDA experiment to study how subatomic particles build up matter.

RI.Logistica visits GSI and FAIR
GSI and FAIR are a new member of the non-profit organization RI.Logistica which aims to “get science in place” by providing tools, infrastructure and standards for logistics. In operating and upgrading the existing GSI accelerators and experiments as well as building, installing and commissioning our future FAIR research facilities, GSI/FAIR are facing colossal logistical challenges. Some of those are unique, some are common to several research infrastructures, which allows for synergies.
