Particle Physics Future

US told to invest in particle physics. ‘America must boost its investment in particle physics if it is to stay at the forefront of the discipline. That is the conclusion of a National Academy of Sciences panel charged with recommending priorities for US particle physics over the next 15 years. The panel believes that the “intellectual centre of gravity” within the field is moving abroad and that, as things stand, within a few years most American experimental particle physicists will be working at facilities overseas.’

Physics in America at Crossroads and in Crisis, Panel Says. ‘Physics in America is at a crossroads and in crisis, just as humanity stands on the verge of great discoveries about the nature of matter and the universe, a panel from the National Academy of Sciences said yesterday.’
