The Technology Tour of the Senior Expert Chemists from the GDCh in 2014 again went to Darmstadt and the surrounding area. This tour was also carried out together with the retired VAA members of the Wolfgang Industrial Park. This time the newly opened Hessian State Museum in Darmstadt (HLMD) and the Society for Heavy Ion Research (GSI) north of Darmstadt were on the program.
HLMD. The Hessian State Museum was completely renovated from 2007 to 2014, so that the architecture by Alfred Messel shines in fresh splendor. The presentation of the collections has been redesigned both structurally and in terms of content. The HLMD offers us two tours: (1) general overview of the redesign of the building and the collections and (2) tour with a focus on Art Nouveau (each max. 25 people).
GSI. The GSI Helmholtz Center for Heavy Ion Research in Darmstadt operates a large, globally unique accelerator facility for ions. Researchers from all over the world use the facility for experiments to gain new insights into the structure of matter and the development of the universe. In addition, they develop novel applications in medicine and technology. Highlights are the various research facilities, radiation therapy and the new major FAIR construction site.
