Description

Chairman Fuqua and members of the Subcommitte, I would like to thank you for this opportunity to describe the status of the supercollider research and development program. Over two years have now elapsed since SSC was given the highest priority by the US high energy community. Shortly after, in the fall of 1983, the Department of Energy formally initiated the R&D phase for this potential facility. The developments in the physics world during these past two years have strengthened the arguments for the SSC. Furthermore, the national effort devoted to the SSC R&D during that time has provided us with ... continued below

Description

Chairman Fuqua and members of the Subcommitte, I would like to thank you for this opportunity to describe the status of the supercollider research and development program. Over two years have now elapsed since SSC was given the highest priority by the US high energy community. Shortly after, in the fall of 1983, the Department of Energy formally initiated the R&D phase for this potential facility. The developments in the physics world during these past two years have strengthened the arguments for the SSC. Furthermore, the national effort devoted to the SSC R&D during that time has provided us with firm evidence that the SSC can be built with the existing technology and within the cost estimates originally calculated a year and a half ago. I would like to describe for you today some of the accomplishments of this R&D effort and tell you about our plans for the future. I would also like to touch briefly on the important subject of international collaboration. The main objectives of the research and development effort are: (1) to develop and optimize the components necessary for construction of the SSC. Because the magnets are by far the single most expensive and most critical element of the SSC, the major effort during the past two years has been directed in this area; (2) to perform systems tests of the magnets and the associated cryogenic and control systems, and thus to optimize the systems aspects of the proposed machine; (3) to define the requirements that have to be satisfied by potential SSC sites; (4) to prepare a complete conceptual design of the SSC, including a detailed cost estimate, and the projected schedule for the construction, tests and start-up of the whole facility.
