"target" Magazine Issue 18 with Special Supplement: Corona published
Two major topics are the focus of the 18th issue of our magazine "target" of GSI and FAIR. On the one hand, the corona pandemic has impacted all areas of our lives. Of course, this also applies to our campus and our activities. Therefore, we have attached a special supplement to this issue, which is dedicated to the operations and research at GSI and FAIR during this time and our efforts to fight the pandemic. On the other hand, last year we celebrated our 50th anniversary with many activities and events. You will find more in the main issue.
In addition to looking back at our history, we look to the future: to our experiments of FAIR Phase 0, to new FAIR components and to the awarding of ERC grants to our researchers. In this issue we are particularly pleased to introduce our new Administrative Managing Director, Dr. Ulrich Breuer. We also report on the meeting of international element discoverers, merging neutron stars, star collisions at 800 billion °C, other research highlights and much more.
We’ve taken our anniversary as an opportunity to give our magazine a new style. In this new look, we will continue to keep you up to date about the progress achieved by our research programs and the construction of FAIR as well as current events on our campus. (CP)
