No physics for US

US physics begins to crumble under budget strain – fundamentals – 08 January 2008 – New Scientist

The reality of the US budget cuts to particle physics has hit home. The Stanford Linear Accelerator Center (SLAC) in California, US, has just announced a trio of painful consequences: the end of work on the International Linear Collider, the imminent closure of its BaBar antimatter experiment, and the layoff of 125 workers.

Fermilab is also struggling with the disastrous cuts and may lose 200 jobs. It has also been forced to suspend work on the NOvA experiment, which was designed to study the way neutrino particles spontaneously transform into different varieties.
