More Press for the ILC, LHC, and EPP 2010
Nigel Lockyear of teh University of Pennsylvania and a member of the EPP 2010 panel has an opinion piece on Newsday.com today arguing for support of the new long range vision of HEP that EPP 2010 has developed to maintain a leadership program for the US in particle physics.
A recent report by the National Academy of Sciences warns that “the price the U.S. would pay by forfeiting a leadership position in particle physics is too high. Leadership in science remains central to the economic and cultural vitality of the U.S. To fuel the innovation economy of the 21st century, to maintain national security, and to produce knowledge needed to ensure our well-being in the face of a changing and uncertain world …”
Strong support for US participation in the LHC followed be building the International Linear Collider is the prescription for this challenge.
