 Wired News: Physics Frontier Goes Euro
With that action, the world's center of gravity for high-energy physics research will shift unambiguously to Europe for the first time, a prospect that is leaving American scientists and policy makers increasingly concerned.
For a U.S. scientific community that has held a leading role in particle physics at least since the Manhattan Project, this is an unfamiliar, and potentially deeply disturbing, change.
Now, the prospect of seeing the world's leading high-energy physics laboratories move overseas is drawing strong calls for renewed investment, and even a few dire warnings of national decline.
