Excellent Marks for TESLA

Today at 11 a.m., the German Science Council, installed by the German government, published its evaluation statement about large scale facilities for basic research in the natural sciences. It assessed the TESLA project planned by DESY in cooperation with international partners to be worth of support under the following conditions: to detail the project proposal for the superconducting electron-positron linear collider with respect to international funding and cooperation, and to present a revised technical project proposal for an X-ray laser version with a separate linear accelerator. In its statement, the Science Council stresses that the international TESLA collaboration plays a worldwide leading role in the research and development of superconducting accelerators and that the technical project proposal for TESLA has reached a high degree of maturity.
