In July Patrick Burghardt, State Secretary in the Hessen State Ministry for Higher Education, Research and the Arts (HMWK), visited FAIR and GSI. He was accompanied by Ulrike Mattig, representative of the State of Hesse in the FAIR Council and deputy chair of the GSI supervisory board. Burghardt took the opportunity to extensively inform himself about the research of the existing facility and the progress on the construction site. “Today I could see for myself about the cutting-edge research at GSI! You have to experience what’s happening here to understand it,” he commented his visit on Twitter.

Burghardt was welcomed by Professor Paolo Giubellino, the Scientific Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, and Jörg Blaurock, the Technical Managing Director of FAIR and GSI. In a joint discussion they reported about previous research highlights and the currently running research program of GSI, as well the plans for the scientific use of the FAIR accelerator facility. Burghardt received comprehensive information about the construction of FAIR, and was able to see the progress with his own eyes on a subsequent bus tour to the construction site.

In the following tour to the existing GSI facility he witnessed the accelerator operation in the main control room. He also visited the experimental storage ring ESR, and learned more about the tumor therapy with carbon ions developed at GSI.
