    Disappointed American physicists are anxiously searching for a way to salvage some science from the ill-fated superconducting super collider. The $billion super collider has been the highest.   What was to be called the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) began as an idea in Four years of lobbying resulted in the Congress approval of a bill earmarking a $ billion dollar budget for the project. A site in Texas was chosen, and in construction began on what was supposed to become the world’s largest super collider.

The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC), a planned kilometer ring in Texas, would have crashed protons together at higher energies than any accelerator before or since, dwarfing even the current Large Hadron Collider at CERN, where the Higgs boson was by: The Superconducting super collider collection: bibliography and archival listing of materials at the Illinois State Geological Survey by Wasson, Patricia Gobert; Illinois State Geological SurveyPages: Particle Accelerators: From the Cyclotron to the Superconducting Super Collider (Venture Books) Hardcover – April 1, /5(1).

Summary: The collection was assembled by Museum curators and documents the efforts of persons in eight states to have the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC), a particle accelerator, built in their state. Also documents efforts in each state to oppose locating the SSC in their state.

The collection contains correspondence, press kits, posters. The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) was to be a ring particle accelerator, proton-proton collider, and high-energy The Superconducting super collider collection book laboratory that was to have had a ring circumference of fifty-four miles.

It was initially suggested in by a National Reference Designs Study. The ill-fated Superconducting Super Collider was going to be the largest particle accelerator ever built. It's physical imprint on the land of Texas necessitated a role for the General Land Office.

After the project was defunded inthe Texas National Research Laboratory Commissioner was dissolved. The surface land and sub-surface land leases acquired by the Commission and the voluminous. Building the Superconducting Super Collider.

The idea of building the Superconducting Super Collider came when the USA was still at the height of its economic power and taking on the biggest, best, and most ambitious projects was a matter of national pride. Schematic of the Superconducting Super Collider, depicting its main 87 km ring—designed to circulate and collide twin proton beams, each at energies up to 20 TeV—the injector accelerators, and experimental halls, where the protons were to collide.

That ring circumference is more than three times the 27 km circumference of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider (orange).Cited by: 1. Like CERN’s Large Hadron Collider on steroids, the Superconducting Super Collider was to be a huge underground ring complex beneath the area near Waxahachie, Texas, that would have been the world’s most energetic particle : Eric Grundhauser.

The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) that would have graced the rolling prairies of Texas would have boasted energy 20 times larger than any accelerator ever constructed and might have been revealing whatever surprises that lay beyond the Higgs, allowing the U.S.

to retain dominance in high-energy : David Appell. Published on (Inside Science) – “In October the U.S. Congress terminated the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC). The Texas Superconducting Super Collider would have dwarfed CERN’s LHC, according to reports.

It was designed as an enormous underground ring complex situated close to Waxahachie and had it been allowed to go forward, would have been considered the most energetic particle accelerator in the world. The project’s construction commenced in the early ‘90s, but only 14 Author: Spring Sault.

The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) is intended to become the world's largest and most powerful particle accelerator and will be used to explore the basic nature of matter and energy.

This detailed article summarizes some of the 'high energy physics' involved, describes the proposed SSC research facility, and explains some of the experimental apparatus that will be needed.

Superconducting Super Collider (SSC), the largest scientific instrument ever built, in Ellis County, Texas. The SSC would be a laboratory facility designed to investigate the basic structure of matter.

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. 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.

This book tells the history of the conception, construction, and ultimately, the demise of the Superconducting Super Collider.
