Current research and future developments at FAIR (Facility for Antiproton and Ion Research) and GSI Helmholtzzentrum für Schwerionenforschung were main topics during the visit of a delegation from Darmstadt's new sister city San Antonio in Texas. The programme of the high-ranking delegation from the US-American metropolis, which is visiting Darmstadt to finalize signing of the sister city agreement, included after the greeting by Joint Research Director Professor Karlheinz Langanke a visit to the research facilities on campus. The guests also had the opportunity to find out about the current status of the unique FAIR accelerator facility, which at present is being built at GSI.


Among the members of the delegation visiting FAIR and GSI were representatives of the political committees of the city of San Antonio, its scientific institutions and the Chamber of Commerce as well as representatives of the city of Darmstadt. Hightech, research and development were among the leading themes of the programme for the American guests during their stay in Darmstadt.
