The committee heard testimony from academicians, corporation executives and administration officials on the progress of the superconducting super collider under construction in Texas. The super collider, planned to be the largest in the U.S., would allow physicists to conduct experiments on the nature of matter. The project’s cost estimates have risen almost two billion dollars since the planning stages, making some opponents of the project question the tangible benefits to the country of the scientific findings determined by the collider. The committee heard testimony on the progress of construction of the collider, foreign financial contributions to the project, and the project’s eventual benefits and costs to the nation. Representatives Frost, Livingston, and Hoagland testified about the superconducting supercollider. close
