Korean delegation visits FAIR and GSI


A Korean delegation consisting of representatives from the government and from science institutions visited the FAIR and GSI facilities recently. Following an introductory talk about the research and the construction of the international FAIR facility, the group had the opportunity for in-depth discussions with Research Director Professor Karlheinz Langanke and with Professor Marco Durante, Head of the Biophysics research department.

On the subsequent tour through the facility, the participants visited, among other stations, the main control room, the facility for the production of superheavy elements and the treatment facility for tumor therapy with carbon ions. On the viewpoint platform of the FAIR construction site the group gained an overview of the building measures and the progress of the construction works. (cp)
