Recently, Michael Boddenberg visited the FAIR and GSI facilities. Boddenberg is a member of the Hessian state parliament and chairman of its CDU parliamentary group. He was accompanied by Dr. Tobias Kleiter, head of the parliamentary group chairman's office. The guests were welcomed by the joint management of FAIR and GSI.

In an introductory lecture followed by a discussion, Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, Ursula Weyrich, Administrative Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, and Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of FAIR and GSI, provided information on the research at the existing GSI facilities as well as on the objectives and status of the FAIR project. During a tour of the FAIR construction site, the guests were afterwards able to see the progress of construction and, in particular, take a look at the work on the transfer building and the tunnel segments.

Subsequently, they visited the test stand for the superconducting magnets of the FAIR ring accelerator SIS100 on the FAIR/GSI campus, which are cooled down to minus 269°C during operation. At the large-scale detector HADES, they were informed about the detector technology and the research carried out on the measuring setup. Special attention was paid to the complex data acquisition, storage and analysis of large amounts of measurement data. (cp)
