  • Good News for NSF's LIGO
    will be sent through 4 km L shaped tubes designed to detect changes in the beam resulting from gravitational waves The project is jointly managed by the California Institute of Technology and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology The NSB action responds to a demand made by the Senate VA HUD Independent Agencies Appropriations Subcommittee in July A committee report accompanying the NSF funding bill stated The Committee continues to be concerned about ongoing management problems at one of the two sites for the LIGO Program especially in light of concerns expressed by the chief financial officer of the Foundation and directs the Foundation to provide its complete reorganization plan for LIGO with the fiscal year 1995 operating plan In addition the Committee directs that no fiscal year 1995 funding for LIGO shall be obligated until the new management plan has been approved by the National Science Board The Committee directs the Foundation to submit a progress report and updated cost estimates for LIGO by November 15 1994 see FYI 112 The board authorized amendments to the CalTech Cooperative Agreement increasing LIGO spending to 365 4 million This figure includes 212 million previously approved for construction and associated R D The first amendment authorizes an additional 84 7 million for construction and R D This increase consists of 36 6 million because the construction schedule is stretched out from four to seven years 16 million for recommended additional staff 9 million for extra contingency funding and 23 1 million in additional funding over the project s projected base cost mostly for more sophisticated detectors A second amendment approves for the first time 68 7 million for commissioning and operations from FY 1997 to 2001 The new construction cost figures and staffing levels result from an intensive project review by a committee

  • NSF Press Release
    These waves can bring images of the dark side of the universe pictures of objects that emit no electromagnetic waves at all LIGO will consist of detectors at two sites operating in unison Hanford Reservation Washington and Livingston Parish Louisiana Each L shaped installation will beam laser light down 4 kilometer long evacuated tubes Changes in the length of the light s path caused by gravitational waves should register in the detectors LIGO offers the potential to open a radically new window onto the universe said NSF director Neal Lane The project is a scientific challenge that promises to open an entirely new frontier of research The NSB s recommendation which came after a rigorous review and restructuring of the project covers a two part increase 84 7 million for construction and associated research and development R D to be awarded over fiscal years 1995 to 1998 and 68 7 million for commissioning and the first years of operation running from fiscal years 1997 through 2001 Both LIGO sites will be operating in an integrated fashion by then Funds for LIGO s initial operation were not included as part of the original NSB action in 1990 which awarded 212 million for LIGO construction research and development over four years In more detail the new estimate for construction and associated R D includes the 212 million previously approved as well as the 84 7 million increase broken down as follows 36 6 million the additional cost of stretching out construction from four to seven years 16 million for increasing the size of the project s staff in keeping with recommendations from external reviews 23 1 million for an increase in the base cost and 9 million for an increase in contingency funds to cover unexpected costs NSF has worked closely with
