Number 143 (Story #2), September 9, 1993 by Phillip F. Schewe and Ben Stein|
THE FATE OF THE SUPERCONDUCTING SUPER COLLIDER will be decided in Congress in the next few weeks. The House voted against it and now the Senate must decide. On Sept. 13 a group of notable physicists, including Leon Lederman, Burton Richter, Steven Weinberg, SSC director Roy Schwitters, and (by videotape) Stephen Hawking, will meet at George Washington University (Lisner Auditorium at 12 noon) to speak to an audience of students and scientists about why the SSC should be built. The event is sponsored by the Particles and Fields division of The American Physical Society (for further information, contact Michael Barnett at LBL, 510- 486-5650).
