The ILC is a fantastic accelerator, Nobel says

| 19 March 2015 Professor David Gross speaks in strong support for the International Linear Collider, a "fantastic new accelerator". He says that for the exploation of the properties of the Higgs‬, the promise of new particles, forces and a new understanding the ILC is one of "the most exciting prospects." He says the he "applauds the Japanese government and Japanese colleagues for leading the effort to host the ILC in Japan, and I trust and hope that the international community will join this effort." David Gross was awarded the ‪NobelPrize‬ in Physics in 2004 along with Frank Wilczek and David Politzer. He is a theoretical physicist at the Kavli Institute for Theoretical Physics at UC Santa Barbara. Category: Video of the week | Tagged:
