Last week, as part of the Muon Accelerator Program (MAP) Spring Collaboration Meeting at Fermilab, many of us were privileged to hear a seminar by Nobel laureate Carlo Rubbia. He described his vision for developing muon accelerator capabilities in support of a muon-based Higgs factory. A major thrust of his seminar was to emphasize the need to complete a demonstration of muon ionization cooling. Muon ionization cooling…
