FAIR - The Universe in the Lab
Currently the international accelerator facility FAIR, one of the largest research projects worldwide, is being built in Darmstadt, Germany. At FAIR, matter that usually only exists in the depth of space will be produced in a lab for research. Scientists from all over the world will be able to gain new insights into the structure of matter and the evolution of the universe from the Big Bang to the present.
The scientific user community of FAIR is organised in a set of experimental collaborations, which in itself are grouped in the four scientific pillars of FAIR (in alphabetical order):
