Ion42 - FAIR project in DarmstadtImposing construction and a current view of the overall site

In mid-October a heavy transporter brought a 7.2 by 4.2 meter large and 4.5 ton fixed / loose flange construction to the FAIR construction site. This construction will tightly and robustly connect the new particle accelerator system with the existing system. At the same time it allows the two components to move in relation to one another.

The current drone video gives an impressive view of the entire construction site and its construction progress, in particular of the accelerator and experimental structures that are being built and later will be connected to the storage ring.
