The design is clunky, but the faces look familiar: the very first issue of NewsLine was published on 18 August 2005. It had lots of live coverage from the meeting in Snowmass that more or less officially started a global R&D project for the International Linear Collider. It made scientists from different collider and R&D backgrounds work together towards the goal of eventually building the next big adventure in particle physics.
Some 400 issues of ILC / LC NewsLine later the accelerator and detector designs have matured a lot, the project has experienced some ups, some downs and has taken many "important steps towards realisation," including the selection of a possible site in northern Japan.
While R&D continues and the community keenly anticipates results from the LHC's run 2, the project is now at a stage where its realisation is down to political decisions rather than technological challenges.
