"High Energy Physics - On the Ground, Underground, and in Space"
ABSTRACT:
The Office of High Energy Physics' mission is to explore the fundamental nature of matter, energy, space and time. The core of the program centers on investigations of elementary particles and the interactions between them using high energy particle accelerators. In order to fully explore the science, experiments are also done on the ground, underground and in space. The DOE HEP program provides about 90 percent of the federal support for high energy physics research in the U.S. and involves over 2,450 researchers at over 100 universities and 8 laboratories. The High Energy Physics current experimental program will be described, along with a look towards possibilities for the future.
