Title: Summary audit report on lessons learned from the Superconducting Super Collider Project

Summary audit report on lessons learned from the Superconducting Super Collider Project In October 1993, the Congress decided to terminate the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) project after expending about $1.57 billion on the project.
