Member of the Bundestag Marcus Bühl visits FAIR and GSI


An overview of the latest developments at GSI/FAIR and the scientific activities on campus were central topics during the visit of Marcus Bühl, a member of the Bundestag. The politician comes from Illmenau and belongs to the AfD party. He is member of the budget committee of the Bundestag and deputy member of the committee on internal affairs and community. He was received by Prof. Dr. Paolo Giubellino, Scientific Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, and Jörg Blaurock, Technical Managing Director of GSI and FAIR, as well as Dr. Ingo Peter, Head of Public Relations of GSI and FAIR.

Information on scientific activities, the progress of the FAIR project and a tour were part of the program. Marcus Bühl got insights into newly developed and completed high-tech components for the accelerator facility FAIR. After that, a walking tour of the FAIR construction site was on the agenda. This included the underground accelerator ring tunnel, the central transfer building, the crucial hub for the facility’s beamline, and the buildings for the CBM experimental cave and the NUSTAR experimental caves. The test facility for superconducting accelerator magnets was also visited. There, mainly high-tech components for FAIR are tested, for example the dipole magnets for the ring accelerator SIS100.
