This morning, the GLAD magnet for the R3B experiment arrived at GSI. It was transported close to Cave C where initial tests will be conducted before moving it to its position within Cave C. It is planned to use the GLAD magnet for NUSTAR Phase-0 experiments of R3B until the final move to the high-energy cave of FAIR.
