    The Superconducting Super Collider has been a stain on U.S. scientific history ever since the project was canceled in It was hoped the collider would reveal new forms of matter and energy. The Superconductlng Super Collider (SSC) site is situated in a northeast-trending belt of shallowly southeast-dlpping, Cretaceous marine strata. The strata owe their origin, and their dip, to the development and filling of the Gulf coastal embayment in Cretaceous through Tertiary times. Today, the.

    Superconducting Super Collider, – * The Problem of Project Management Michael Riordan UC Santa Cruz & Stanford University *Research supported by NSF Award No. View along the SSC's main ring tunnel, as seen while under construction in early Prologue: In late the U.S. Congress cancelled the Superconducting Super Collider(SSC), an enormous proton accelerator designed to attain a collision energy of 40 TeV, nearly triple that of the Large Hadron.

      When I was waiting on the train station I went to bookstore there and bought really cool book, it is called The Particle at the End of the Universe, by Sean Carroll (By this particle author means Higgs boson). So, I already read 80 pages and now I want to . This article is adapted in part from his recent book coauthored with Lillian Hoddeson and Adrienne W. Kolb, Tunnel Visions: The Rise and Fall of the Superconducting Super Collider(University of Chicago Press, ). At least a dozen good reasons have been suggested for the demise of the SSC. 1–4 Primary among them are the project’s con-Cited by: 1.

The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) (also nicknamed the desertron) was a particle accelerator complex under construction in the vicinity of Waxahachie, Texas. Its planned ring circumference was kilometers ( mi) with an energy of 20 TeV per proton and was set to be the world's largest and most energetic.

The project's director was Roy Schwitters, a physicist at the University of Intersecting Storage Rings: CERN, – When the US Congress terminated the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) in October after about $2 billion had been spent on the project, it ended more than four decades of American leadership in high-energy physics.

To be sure, US hegemony in the discipline had been deteriorating for more than a decade, but the SSC cancellation was the ultimate blow that put Europe unquestionably in the Cited by: 1.

No longer content to call it by its given name, press coverage at the time dubbed it the ‘God Particle”/5(70). That experiment, the Superconducting Supercollider, would have revolutionized our understanding of the physical world by giving us our first glimpse of the “God Particle.” And, proposed during the Cold War, it would have been a monument to the technological and scientific prowess of.

Superconducting Super Collider The committee heard testimony from academicians, corporation executives and administration officials on the progress of the J Coming approximately four years after Congress canceled the Superconducting Super Collider, the agreement represents a new era in international cooperation on mega-science projects.

Signing this agreement were DOE Secretary Federico Pena, NSF Director Neal Lane, CERN Director General Christopher Llewellyn Smith and CERN Council President. Its seventeen-mile-long circular underground tunnel, recycled from a retired accelerator called the Large Electron-Positron Collider (LEP), represents a triumph for international cooperation.

In October the US Congress terminated the Superconducting Super Collider — then the largest pure-science project ever attempted, with a total cost estimated to exceed $10 billion. It was a stunning loss for the US high-energy physics community, which until that moment had perched for decades at the pinnacle of American science.

It would be a particle accelerator capable of accelerating each of two counter-rotating beams of protons to an energy of 20 trillion electron volts. In early I asked an up-and-coming young physicist about her plans.
