N2 - The October termination of the Superconducting Super Collider by Congress was a stunning blow for the US high-energy physics community — and a watershed event in the history of Big Science. Obtaining support for this expensive project required physicists to make uncomfortable compromises and enter unfamiliar alliances with Department of Energy officials, Texas politicians and businessmen, and partners from the military-industrial complex.
The billions of taxpayer dollars needed to build the SSC came with a level of public scrutiny few physicists had anticipated. The combination of this attention, ever-mounting SSC cost overruns, perceptions of mismanagement of the project by the physicists and DOE, and the lack of major foreign contributions were prominent factors in its termination.
Its death raises difficult questions about maintaining public support for such a large and expensive project during its lengthy construction period. Another important question is whether and how academic scientists and their government backers can manage such an enormous undertaking on their own. Comparisons with the successful European experience in building the Large Hadron Collider help to address these issues.

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 Louis Ianniello served as its first Project Director for 15 months. The system was first formally discussed in the December National Reference Designs Study, which examined the technical and economic feasibility of a machine with the design capacity of 20 TeV per proton.

Keith R. The initial goal was to build the world's largest particle accelerator to produce controlled, extraordinarily high-energy electron and proton collisions. Physicists anticipated these collisions would yield data on the nature of the Higgs boson elementary particle and other nuclear phenomena occurring only at high-energy levels. Tunnel Visions is such a valuable piece of scholarship because its authors
Starting in the s, US physicists dominated the search for elementary particles; aided by the association of this research with national security, they held this position for decades.
