With pencils, color palettes and other painting utensils the "Urban Sketchers Rhein-Main" were guests at GSI and FAIR. The motto of the international artist network, which is represented by regional groups all over the world, says: "We show the world, one drawing at a time” For this purpose the group members visit interesting places which they paint or draw. This time it was the world of fast ions and the universe in the lab that the "Urban Sketchers" focused on and captured on paper.

Recently, Laura Garavini, who is a Senator in the Italian parliament, visited FAIR and GSI. She was accompanied by Santi Umberti, SPD member of the Town Council of Darmstadt and chairman of the Committee for Business Development and Science of the city of Darmstadt.

Perspectives and opportunities for future cooperation with the University of Salerno were the focus of a visit by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Director of FAIR and GSI. The aim is to intensify the scientific exchange between researchers. In order to promote scientific and technological cooperation between GSI/FAIR, the University of Salerno (UNISA) and the department of physics, a “Memorandum of Understanding“ (MoU) has now been concluded.

Where does the world of atomic nuclei end? Scientists went further into the region of unstable elements than ever before. An experimental collaboration at the fragment separator of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung has for the first time detected potassium-31, an isotope with eight neutrons less than the stable potassium atom. An atomic nucleus that remote from stability has never been observed before. The results were published in the journal Physical Review Letters.

In 1994, the international HADES collaboration, which today consists of more than 150 scientists from nine countries and operates the large detector of the same name at GSI, became part of GSI. The collaboration celebrated its 25th anniversary recently with a special colloquium on the FAIR/GSI campus and an art exhibition in the cafeteria. In the future, HADES will become an important part of the CBM pillar at FAIR.

Professor Ralph Bruder, until the end of 2019 Vice President of the Technische Universität (TU) Darmstadt, recently visited FAIR and GSI. He was greeted by Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, Dorothee Sommer, Head of Human Resources, and Ingo Peter, Head of Public Relations.

A group of scientists, among them several from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and from Technical University of Darmstadt, succeeded to experimentally determine characteristics of nuclear processes in matter ten million times denser and 25 times hotter than the centre of our Sun. A result of the measurement is that intermediate-mass stars are very likely to explode, and not, as assumed until now, collapse.

Recently, a high-ranking delegation from the Italian research institute INFN (Istituto Nazionale di Fisica Nucleare) visited the facilities of FAIR and GSI. INFN Vice President Professor Eugenio Nappi as well as Professor Diego Bettoni, member of the INFN Executive Board, and Professor Vincenzo Patera of INFN Roma1, spokesperson of the International Biophysics Collaboration, were able to inform themselves in detail about the progress of the FAIR project and the research at FAIR and GSI.

With the start of new year there is a change in the management of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung GmbH and the Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research in Europe GmbH (FAIR GmbH). Ursula Weyrich, the previous Administrative Managing Director, moves to the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg where she takes over as Administrative Director.
