Transcript 1 nto the atomic age UH professors help bring super collider to Texas A multibillion-dollar superconducting super collider, portions of which UH professors helped design, will be built near Dallas, Energy Secretary John Herrington announced. Several UH physics professors — including Roy Weinstein, Ed Hungerford and Kwong-Hou Lau — participated in the development of the super collider. HARC's Texas Accelerator Center played a key role in developing proposals for the Texas center, Hamilton said. UH physics professor Lowell Wood, who worked on proposals to build the super collider, described the device as a gigantic research tool. 44What it will do is ac celerate protons — the nuclei of hydrogen — in opposite directions at just under the speed of light," Wood said. He said the speeding particles will then collide and shatter, providing scientists with information about what holds protons together. Wood said the collider is essential to basic high-energy physics research, but will not immediately produce beneficial products. 4'There are no potential benefits, per se, if you're looking for something that's going to make life easier in the next ten years," Wood said. 44But there will probably be spinoffs including faster computers and colliders for use in medical research," he added. Hamilton said the collider will provide important research information about nuclear physics, cancer treatment, isotope production, lasers, food sterilization and X-ray and neutron diagonoses of materials. HARC estimates the facility — consisting of a collider tunnel some 52 miles in circumference, accerlerator magnets and refrigerated units — will employ about 3,000 scientists, engineers and skilled workers, and a support staff of about 2,000. The project is expected to give a much needed boost to the Texas economy. ► Michael A.
