      The Superconducting Super Collider was a particle accelerator complex under construction in the vicinity of Waxahachie, Texas. Its planned ring circumference was kilometers with an energy of. In response to a congressional request, GAO reviewed the Department of Energy's (DOE) selection of a site for its proposed superconducting super collider (SSC) to determine whether: (1) precedents exist for selecting sites for multimillion dollar research projects on the basis of competitive bidding, with states providing land and other incentives; (2) federal .

The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is the world's largest and highest-energy particle collider and the largest machine in the world. It was built by the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN) between and in collaboration with o scientists and hundreds of universities and laboratories, as well as more than countries. It lies in a tunnel 27 ALICE: A Large Ion Collider Experiment.

    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 . This article describes the beginnings of the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC). The narrative starts in the early s with the discussion of the process that led to the recommendation by the US high energy physics community to initiate work on a multi-TeV hadron by: 6.

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.

Congress. House. Committee on Science, Space, and Technology.]. The Superconducting Super Collider was a particle accelerator complex under construction in the vicinity of Waxahachie, Texas. Its planned ring circumference was kilometers with an energy of 20 TeV per proton and was set to be the world's largest and most energetic.

OVERVIEW The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE)* has proposed that the United States build the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC), a state-of-the-art laboratory facility for the study of high-energy physics.

The proposed SSC would be the largest scientific instrument ever built. Sen. Dennis DeConcini (D-Ariz.) called on the congressional General Accounting Office to review the objectivity of the selection process, while Sen.

Though the process was a drawn-out political affair, the final choice seems a natural one; after all, everything’s bigger in Texas!
