[66.01] Cosmic Convergence: Particles, Stars, and the Universe

R. L. Orbach (Office of Science, U.S. Department of Energy)

The boundaries between astronomy, cosmology, high energy physics, and nuclear physics are vanishing. Ground-based accelerators and telescopes, underground detectors, and space-based observatories are all essential to our understanding of matter and energy at the smaller scales, objects in the universe today, and the origin, evolution, and destiny of the universe. The DOE Office of Science, the National Science Foundation and National Aeronautics and Space Administration are collaborating across a broad spectrum of projects: theoretical, experimental, and computational. The recently released ``Facilities for the Future of Science: A Twenty-Year Outlook" by the DOE Office of Science has profound implications for science at the very small and very large.
