Secretary General of the CDU Hesse Manfred Pentz visits GSI and FAIR


Manfred Pentz, Secretary General of the CDU Hesse and Member of the State Parliament, recently visited GSI and FAIR to learn about the progress of the FAIR project and the current scientific activities. The guests were received by Professor Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, Dr. Ulrich Breuer, Administrative Managing Director of GSI and FAIR and Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of GSI and FAIR as well as Dr. Ingo Peter, Head of Press and Public Relations of GSI and FAIR and other GSI/FAIR staff. 

After an introductory presentation on the status of the FAIR project, campus development, previous research successes and current experiments, the guests visited the FAIR construction site. The tour took them to the underground SIS100 accelerator tunnel and the CBM experiment, both of which have completed shell construction, and the transfer building, which forms the central hub of the facility beamline. A stop at the shell construction area of the Super-FRS, which will sort exotic particles, and the future NUSTAR experiment area rounded off the comprehensive picture of the future international research facility.
