By 2030, data centres could be responsible for 13 percent of worldwide power consumption. In Frankfurt, the global network node with the highest data volume, data centres today already consume 20 percent of all local electricity – and this figure is rising. A large part of it is used for cooling power. Already today, the waste heat from single large-scale data centres could be used to heat up to 10,000 households. An answer to this global challenge comes from Goethe University and GSI.
21 International Chemistry Olympiad participants took the opportunity to gain exciting insights into the research conducted at GSI’s Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research (FAIR) in Darmstadt, Germany, at the end of January. The young talents from Hesse and Thuringia were accompanied by the supervisors of the International Chemistry Olympiad (IChO) and former Chemistry Olympians.
The technology behind the FAIR project is unique and customized in many areas. In the large ring accelerator SIS100, the heart of the future accelerator center FAIR, various sophisticated magnets and entire magnet systems will ensure that the ion beam is precisely guided and focused. The quadrupole modules also belong to them. The first of Series (FoS) has now been completed and delivered to GSI.
