Precise time measurements play a vital role in our daily life. They allow reliable navigation and accurate experimenting and provide a basis for world-wide synchronized exchange of data. A team of researchers of PTB Braunschweig, Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität München (LMU), Johannes Gutenberg University Mainz (JGU), the Helmholtz Institute Mainz (HIM), and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt now reports on a decisive step toward the potential development of a nuclear...

It is a spectacular low temperature: A research team headed by Robert Grisenti from GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung has successfully detected liquid water at a temperature far below the freezing point: -42.6 degrees Celsius. This discovery is the result of development work on experiments for the future accelerator center FAIR, but it could also enable us to make great progress in our understanding of the earth’s climate.

One of the key questions that need to be addressed regarding the future of human spaceflight as well as robotic exploration programs is how cosmic radiation affects human beings, electronics, and materials. The detailed investigation of this topic is one of the main tasks that must be accomplished in order to provide astronauts and space systems with effective protection. To achieve this goal, the European Space Agency (ESA) will be cooperating closely in the future with the international...

The GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung and the future particle accelerator center FAIR will present cutting-edge research in the area of particle acceleration physics at the “Wissenswerte” (Worth Knowing) dialogue-oriented forum, which will be held at the Darmstadtium congress center in Darmstadt from December 4 to 6. Several hundred specialized journalists, science communicators, and researchers will attend the forum, which is Germany’s most important conference for science...

A multi-year research project led by the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung has been investigating the anti-inflammatory therapeutic effect, as well as the risks, of treatment with the inert gas radon. The project has now received a green light for continuing this research. A total of €4 million will be available to it in the coming four years, with €1.9 million of that amount going to the groups working at GSI.

This year’s Christoph Schmelzer Award has been granted to three young scientists. Lennart Volz from the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ) in Heidelberg, Dr. Johannes Petzoldt from the IBA Group in Louvain-la-Neuve (Belgium), and Dr. Kristjan Anderle from the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt were presented with the award on November 16 at the GSI campus in Darmstadt. The Association for the Promotion of Tumor Therapy with Heavy Ions presents this award annually in...

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.

Dynamic developments and lots of news concerning the construction status of the unique particle accelerator facility FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) sparked considerable interest at the international real estate trade fair Expo Real in Munich. Over a period of three days at Expo Real, FAIR provided an in-depth presentation of the construction planning and the next development steps of the mammoth building project. This year, the focus was primarily on the technical building...

Lots of news about the construction status of the future particle accelerator center FAIR will be presented at the renowned international real estate trade fair Expo Real in Munich. FAIR is a unique facility that is currently being built at the GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung in Darmstadt. After the successful premiere presentation of the FAIR project last year, which attracted great interest, the focus at Expo Real will mainly be on the technical building equipment and other...
