Itinerary and Mission

(see our introductory post here and a list of questions we’ll be considering here.)

Mission:

By traveling to seven eight National Laboratories and the abandoned site of the Superconducting Super Collider, we hope to document the current state of American physics and investigate how transitions have affected the field in the past (from WWII to the postwar era; from the Cold War era to the present) and may affect it in the future (as the CERN-based Large Hadron Collider unlocks a new world of data).

Itinerary (dates are tentative):

Brookhaven National Laboratory (Brookhaven, Long Island, New York; June 11th & 12th)
Oak Ridge National Laboratory (Oak Ridge, Tennessee; June 23rd)
Fermilab National Laboratory (Batavia, Illinois; June 25th)
Argonne National Laboratory (Argonne, Illinois; June 26th)
•The former planned site of the Superconducting Super Collider (Waxahachie, Texas; June 29th)
Los Alamos National Laboratory (Los Alamos, New Mexico; July 2nd)
The Very Large Array (Sorroco, New Mexico; July 3rd)
The Jet Propulsion Laboratory (Pasadena, California; July 10th)
Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley, CA; the week of July 13th)
Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory (Livermore, CA; the week of July 13th)
SLAC National Accelerator Laboratory (Stanford, CA; the week of July 13th)
