The next decade presents NP with a historic opportunity to build on this legacy in developing the “new Standard Model”

The value of our contribution will be broadly recognized outside the field

Nuclear physics studies of ns & fundamental symmetries played an essential role in developing & confirming the Standard Model

Our role has been broadly recognized within and beyond NP

- ~ $750m over 10+ years
- One major new facility (DUSEL)
- Targeted program at other facilities
- Benefits to NP:
- Make NP a major player in era of historic discovery potential; we can help write the textbook on the new SM
- Builds on substantial achievements since 2002 LRP & development of strong groups
- Attractive to junior scientists
- Economy of resources & synergy with other NP facilities
