       MPS Facilities in Development & Under 
                    Construction
Facilities under Construction:
      ALMA: new baseline, early operations increases to $8.2M.
      IceCube: operations initiated at $1.5M level
      Advanced LIGO: construction begins FY 2008.
      LHC (+DOE): coming online soon, delay?

Design and Development:
   • DUSEL: will begin formally in FY 2008, $8.0M, building on previous
     Discovery Research. Just concluded S3 reverse site visit.
   • GSMT (TMT + GMT): $5M R&D.
   • ATST: In “readiness” stage. Cultural & EIS challenges.

Other Projects:
   • Light source: planning to convene panel on NSF role.
   • LHC Experiment Upgrades
    ILC: Cost? When?
