In our magazine "target" we report our research and the current results. At the same time we keep you informed about news at GSI and FAIR in a compact format, and introduce the people behind our research — not only the scientists, but also the indispensable colleagues in administration and technical infrastructure.

In the style of the material samples of the same name, which are used by our scientists for irradiation with the ion beam, we called our magazine "target". We aim to get our information to you on the point, as the scientists do with the ion beam onto their targets: fitted to our readers needs and put in a nutshell.

In the 16th issue of our magazine "target" we report the groundbreaking for FAIR as well as our Open House which enabled approx. 11,000 visitors to gain insight into our research. The detection of heavy elements in a merger of neutron stars has confirmed important predictions of our scientists. And you learn more about the work of our Technology Transfer who aims to convey utilizable developments from research into industry.
