      Time to build a 1 TeV on 1 TeV proton  collider at Brookhaven????
      Maybe magnet technology will allow this one  day soon....

eRHIC is a potential electron-ion collider that would  take advantage of 
the existing Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider at Brookhaven  Lab (which is the 
last operating collider in the the U.S., by the way) by  adding on an 
electron ring to enable more detailed study of the quark-gluon  plasma discovered 
there and help explain what makes matter stick together.  JLab would also 
like to build a similar electron-ion collider. At this point,  the nuclear 
physics community is still discussing the science case for such a  machine; if 
it's seen as a priority, it may get proposed and built in the  2020s at one 
of those two locations.
