On 12 May 2018 The Associated Press reported:
Enter what looks like an industrial garage on the Thomas Jefferson National Accelerator Facility campus, make your way about 25 feet underground and you'll find yourself standing in the midst of scientific history. ...The lab recently completed a $338 million overhaul to its central feature, the Continuous Electron Beam Accelerator Facility, doubling its energy capacity. Scientists say that will allow them to probe deeper into the elements of matter, discovering things about our universe no one has yet had the ability to see.
Global Good News service views this news as a sign of rising positivity in the field of science, documenting the growth of life-supporting, evolutionary trends.
... 'For the first time we have the ability to probe beyond the quarks and understand the strong force that's holding those quarks together inside each proton and neutron,' [Allison Lung, manager of the upgrade project, which took more than a decade from start to finish] said. 'Many other fields of science make assumptions about what quark behavior is. Our job is to get in there and find out if those assumptions are correct or not.'
Other goals include capturing the first 3D images of protons and neutrons and studying what scientists call the 'glue' carrying force between quarks.
The new energy capability, coupled with other new equipment, makes the lab in Hampton Roads' backyard 'the only place in the world where this science can be done. Period.'
