At DOE, body blows to fusion, nuclear physics and particle physics

from Science Insider

From Feb. 18, 2012: Overall, the budget numbers for the Department of Energy's Office of Science, the largest funder of physical sciences research in the United States, look reasonably good. The office would see its budget climb by 2.4 percent to $4.992 billion. Programs thought to be supporting "clean energy" are administration priorities. The U.S. contribution to ITER would increase at the expense of other projects in DOE's fusion program. RHIC would only run for 10 weeks, half the time it did in 2011. The Facility for Rare Isotope Beams would see its 2012 budget cut by more than half. more
