Abstract For U.S. high-energy physicists still reeling from the cancellation of the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) in 1993 and their cash-strapped European colleagues a decision last week is cause for celebration. U.S. and European negotiators said they have the outlines of a deal in which the United States would pump about half a billion dollars into an accelerator that would have rivaled the SSC, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN, Europe`s particle physics laboratory near Geneva. If the proposed arrangement wins support from politicians on both sides of the Atlantic, it would allow CERN to speed up construction of the facility and give U.S. physicists a major role in the project.
