Readers of ECHO visit GSI



The local newspaper "Darmstädter Echo" offers the possibility to visit different sights in the area in the framework of their Echo Summer Tours. Part of the programme was also the GSI Helmholtzzentrum.

40 readers took part in the introductory lecture about GSI research on August 6, and afterwards visited the accelerator facility. The tumour therapy with heavy ions and the planned facility FAIR was especially of interest to the guests.

Apart from GSI visits to the Vivarium, to the European Space Operations Centre ESOC and to the compost works are planned as well.
