The building blocks of matter in our universe were formed in the first 10 microseconds of its existence, according to the currently accepted scientific picture. After the Big Bang about 13.7 billion years ago, matter consisted mainly of quarks and gluons, two types of elementary particles whose interactions are governed by quantum chromodynamics (QCD), the theory of strong interaction. In the early universe, these particles moved (nearly) freely in a quark-gluon plasma. Then, in a phase...

The course for development and construction of the Collector Ring (CR), an important part of the future FAIR accelerator center, has been completely set. During the visit of a delegation of representatives of the Budker Institute for Nuclear Physics (BINP) to the FAIR and GSI campus, the contract for the remaining part of the CR was signed together with the management of FAIR and GSI. Prior to this, two contracts concerning the responsibility for the CR project realization and the dipole magnets...

The "Euroschool on Exotic Beams" has been a meeting place for graduates, doctoral students and young postdocs for a quarter of a century. Through high-ranked speakers, a good choice of relevant topics and attractive lectures, the school is ideally suited to prepare young scientists for their research work, e.g. at GSI and FAIR. The anniversary event at the end of August 2018 was celebrated at the University of Leuven in Belgium with a special symposium.

Twenty years ago, researchers at GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung began to conduct clinical studies of an innovative cancer treatment that used accelerated carbon ions. In August and September 1998, the first patients were treated with a complete course of carbon therapy for a period of three weeks. It was a starting point of a success story that has led from fundamental research to a widespread medical application.
