The magistrate of the city of Darmstadt was a guest of FAIR and GSI. First there was an information program about the current development of the accelerator facility FAIR, before the magistrate held its working session on site. The guests were welcomed by Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, FAIR Site Manager Harald Hagelskamp and Ingo Peter, Head of Public Relations.

A Korean delegation consisting of representatives from the government and from science institutions visited the FAIR and GSI facilities recently. Following an introductory talk about the research and the construction of the international FAIR facility, the group had the opportunity for in-depth discussions with Research Director Professor Karlheinz Langanke and with Professor Marco Durante, Head of the Biophysics research department.

Clinical and radiobiological studies for tumor therapy with heavy ions began at GSI over 20 years ago. Today the objective of such research at GSI and FAIR is to continue improving this successful therapy and to use it in increasingly customized ways in medical applications. One of the researchers with this objective is Dr. Olga Sokol, a scientist in the Biophysics Department at GSI. One of the focuses of her research is the use of oxygen ions in tumor treatment.

It's a success story with 20 years of tradition: On Saturday, December 8, more than 210 high school students from all over the state of Hesse had the opportunity to gain an insight into current physical research at FAIR and GSI. During tours of the research facilities, the participants explored the accelerators and experiments on the GSI and FAIR campus. They also learned about the construction of the international accelerator facility FAIR and had the opportunity to take a closer look at the...

In November the regional section Darmstadt of the young German Physical Society (jDPG), which was founded in spring 2018, visited the accelerators and experiments of FAIR and GSI with a group of 23 students of the Technical University of Darmstadt. The guided tour followed the path of the ions starting at the ion sources and moving along linear accelerator, main control room, experimental storage ring, ion traps and the treatment facility for tumor therapy, ending at the FAIR construction site.

To create a European science cloud, allowing universal access to research data through a single online platform – that is the aim of the European Open Science Cloud (EOSC) initiative launched by the European Union member states. The EU project ESCAPE has now received a grant. ESCAPE (European Science Cluster of Astronomy & Particle physics ESFRI research infrastructures) aims to address the common Open Science challenges in astronomy and particle physics research domains. FAIR and GSI are...

Further important steps toward the completion of the unique superconducting magnets for the future accelerator center FAIR have been taken during the visit of a delegation from GSI and FAIR to Dubna, Russia. In order to guide the particles in a precise beam at close to light speed, FAIR requires hundreds of magnets and complete magnet systems, some of them custom-made. These systems also include a series of superconducting quadrupole units for the large ring accelerator SIS100. Russia is...

A delegation of 20 high-ranking members of the physics class of the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences visited the research facilities of FAIR and GSI last week. Following a welcome by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, the group gained insight into the existing accelerators and experiments and the scientific highlights of GSI as well as the plans and the project progress of the future international accelerator center FAIR in an introductory talk.
