Central predictions by GSI scientists on the formation of heavy elements such as gold and platinum in the universe have now been observed astrophysically. For the first time gravitational waves of merging neutron stars were detected. This also puts further focus on the future accelerator facility FAIR, as conditions for further research on neutron stars can be simulated there.

Cosmic radiation poses a major threat to the health of astronauts exploring outer space. In order to study in more detail the biological effects of cosmic radiation and find out solutions for effective radiation protection measures in space, the European Space Agency (ESA) and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung have been cooperating on the research project IBER (Investigations into Biological Effects of Radiation) for almost ten years. The project enables groups of researchers to use...

Three high-performance transformers that will be needed for the future particle accelerator facility FAIR were delivered to the FAIR construction site in Darmstadt. Together with a fourth transformer that was already on site, the approximately eight-meter-long devices will connect FAIR to the regional power grid.

It has been a few weeks since the first participants of the GET_INvolved programme have arrived at GSI and FAIR. The new initiative is intended to give international students and young scientists a chance to do an internship and/or a training at GSI and FAIR — a special opportunity to get to know the research institute and life in Germany! Read more in the interview with the three participants Anushka Tibrewal, Jayati Vijaywargiya and Mateusz Sewiolo. Information on applications for GET_INvolved...
