Lecture Series „Wissenschaft für Alle“ at the GSI Helmholtz Centre starts again



The lecture series „Wissenschaft für Alle“ at the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research starts again after pausing for a half-year. The first term will start with the talk „’FAIR’ zwischen Mars und Jupiter – wie der Kleinplanet Nr. 204873 zu seinem Namen kam“ held by Erwin Schwab on February 17, 2010. All talks will be held at the lecture hall of the GSI Helmholtz Centre for Heavy Ion Research, Planckstraße 1, 64291 Darmstadt, and will begin at 2 p. m. Admission is free, a registration in advance is not necessary. Guests are kindly asked to bring a piece of identification for the admission at our gate.

The lecture series „Wissenschaft für Alle“ addresses all persons interested in current science and research. Approximately once per month (excluding the summer holidays) on a Wednesday in the middle of the month a talk of the series will be held.

The topics cover a large scientific spectrum – not only information about research at GSI and FAIR will be given, but also about current physics, chemistry, biology, medicine and computer science. The series aims to prepare scientific processes in a way that is comprehensible to the layman, and to make science accessible for the broader public. The talks are held by both GSI-employees and external speakers of universities and other institutes.

Because of construction works in the lecture hall and the foyer of GSI the lecture series had to pause during the last term.
