The US began building the Superconducting Super Collider in 1991, near Waxahachie, Texas. It was eventually abandoned before being completed leaving 22.5 km of tunnel and 17 shafts. The surface buildings appear to have been sold since the article was written.

What was to be called the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) began as an idea in 1983. Four years of lobbying resulted in the 1987 Congress approval of a bill earmarking a $4.4 billion dollar budget for the project.

With limited financial resources, the U.S. government was forced to choose between funding…
