International Linear Collider Takes a Leading Role in EPP2010 Report

| 27 April 2006 At a time when the Large Hadron Collider is scheduled to start up in 2007 and the Tevatron at Fermilab will shut down by the end of this decade, the particle physics program in the United States is at a crossroads. Should the United States fold its cards and determine that the field of particle physics has lost its steam? Or should the United States step up to the plate and prepare to submit a bid to host the next-generation particle accelerator? These are the questions that the National Academies’ National Research Council charged the Committee on Elementary Particle Physics in the 21st century (EPP2010) to answer, asking the 22-member panel to lay out a 15-year plan. Yesterday on 26 April in the National Academies’ Keck Center in Washington D.C., EPP2010 launched their much-anticipated report, "Revealing the Hidden Nature of Space and Time – Charting the Course for Elementary Particle Physics."
