"target" - Das Wissenschaftsmagazin / Issue 3



The third edition of our German science magazine "target" has been released. In this issue we report amongst others about the opening of the Heidelberg Ion Beam Therapy Centre HIT for cancer therapy, the 1,000th PHELIX laser shot and our proposed name Copernicium for the new detected element 112. But you can also learn what"s up with cosmic rays and space, and why you should juggle now and then with the phases of matter.

In addition to current events at GSI and FAIR we take a look at the founding years of the centre, at that time known as Gesellschaft für Schwerionenforschung, in this issue. "A Research Laboratory For All" gives you a brief insight into the early years of the GSI Helmholtzzentrum, which writes Physics history since December 17, 1969. Subscription & Download

For our staff: "target" is already available in the GSI Helmholtzzentrum e.g. the library, the guesthouse and the CEOs floor or ask your team assistant after the newest issue.

Best regards, your "target"-Team
