Caption: View of the magnet development laboratory of the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC). The laboratory was built to develop new magnets for use in the SSC particle accelerator. The long red objects are 15.8 metre dipole magnets, used to bend the particle beams around the 87km tunnel of the site. The SSC uses two rings of magnets, one mounted above the other, to accelerate protons. A total of 12,000 magnets are needed to construct the rings. When operational in late 1999, the SSC will provide proton-proton collisions of 40 TeV (1 TeV = 1000 billion electron volts).
