The visit of Bernd Reuther, FDP Member of the Bundestag, to GSI and FAIR focused on the progress of the FAIR project and the current scientific activities on campus. The politician was received by Ursula Weyrich, Administrative Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, FAIR Site Manager Harald Hagelskamp and Ingo Peter, Head of Public Relations.

Bernd Reuther is delegate from the Wesel I district and member of the parliamentary Committee on Transport and Digital Infrastructure, in addition member of the federal state executive of the FDP Nordrhein-Westfalen and district chairman of the FDP Wesel.

After an introductory presentation and opportunity for discussion, Bernd Reuther was able to take a close view on the great progress on the construction site FAIR during a tour of the area, from the completed shell construction of the first tunnel segments for the large ring accelerator SIS100 and the work for the central transfer building up to the excavation pit for the further large-scale experiment CBM.

The visit to the test facility for superconducting accelerator magnets, where high-tech components for FAIR are tested, was also on the agenda. It became clear that, in addition to the great progress in construction, the high-tech developments for the mega-project FAIR are already in full swing. (BP)
