(OPEN):
THE "U-S DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY" RECENTLY SELECTED LONG ISLAND'S "BROOKHAVEN NATIONAL LABORATORY" AS THE SITE FOR A NEW "ELECTRON-ION COLLIDER".  THIS ONE-OF-A-KIND PARTICLE-COLLIDER WILL LET SCIENTISTS--FROM ACROSS THE NATION, AND AROUND THE WORLD--PEER INSIDE PROTONS AND ATOMIC NUCLEI, TO REVEAL SECRETS OF THE STRONGEST FORCE IN NATURE.  DOON GIBBS IS BROOKHAVEN'S DIRECTOR...

(GIBBS):
"
THE 'E-I-C' WILL OPEN A NEW FRONTIER IN NUCLEAR PHYSICS:  IT WILL ACT LIKE A 'C-T'-SCANNER FOR ATOMS, ALLOWING US TO EXPLORE THE BUILDING-BLOCKS OF ALL VISIBLE MATTER IN THE UNIVERSE--AS WELL AS THE FORCE THAT HOLDS IT ALL TOGETHER.  THIS CUTTING-EDGE SCIENCE COULD ALSO POWER THE ADVANCED TECHNOLOGIES OF TOMORROW.  AND, THE TOOLS THAT WE DEVELOP WILL IMPROVE THE PRODUCTION OF MEDICAL ISOTOPES, FOR DIAGNOSING AND TREATING DISEASE; IT WILL ENHANCE OUR PARTICLE-DETECTION CAPABILITIES FOR APPLICATIONS, FOR EXAMPLE, IN NATIONAL SECURITY; AND IT WILL LEAD TO ADVANCED USES OF PARTICLE-BEAMS IN INDUSTRY.  THE 'E-I-C' WILL KEEP AMERICA IN THE FOREFRONT OF BOTH NUCLEAR-PHYSICS RESEARCH AND PARTICLE-ACCELERATOR TECHNOLOGY--FOR DECADES TO COME."

(CLOSE):
BROOKHAVEN WILL PARTNER WITH TOP UNIVERSITIES AND OTHER NATIONAL-LABS--INCLUDING VIRGINIA'S "JEFFERSON LAB"--TO BUILD THIS MACHINE, BY THE END OF THE DECADE.  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "B-N-L"-DOT-GOV-SLASH-"E-I-C".
