Accelerator Technology for the Nation
Accelerators underpin every activity of the Office of Science and, increasingly, of the entire scientific
enterprise. From biology to medicine, from materials to metallurgy, from elementary particles to the
cosmos, accelerators provide the microscopic information that forms the basis for scientific under-standing
and applications. The combination of ground and satellite based observatories and particle
accelerators will advance our understanding of our world, our galaxy, our universe, and ourselves.
