The Universe in the Laboratory — New FAIR science film published


Matter: the stuff the world is made of. Matter was created in the universe, but how exactly did it come into being? What are its properties? And how can we use the future particle accelerator FAIR, which is currently under construction at GSI, to give answers to these questions?

Our new film "FAIR — The Universe in the Laboratory" introduces the FAIR facility and shows in a comprehensible fashion which scientific questions will be addressed with FAIR. Furthermore, we explain, which technologies will be used and why our location is the right place for the construction of the facility.
