Department of Energy Approves Construction Start of NSLS-II Project

DOE has given CD-3 status to NSLS II, which means the approval to begin construction on this new facility.

As someone who has worked at the NSLS before, this has to be one of the most over-subscribed and in-demand facility that I've ever seen. So they certainly need the upgrade and the expansion to allow for more users and better facilities, since I don't see the popularity of it to decline. It certainly is serving a large portion of users, especially in the Northeast area of the country.
