  • Abstract. The largest scientific project ever attempted, the Superconducting Super Collider fell to the axe of Congressional budget cutters in 1993. This paper surveys the ten-year history of the project and discusses the principal reasons for its termination. Special attention is paid to the impact of the end of Cold War upon the perceived need to reduce budget deficits and shift the priorities for U.S. science policy.
