begins on 1 October The document can be found at wwwfdsysgov The stories below detail requests for specific agencies programs or initiatives and offer some insight into the Obama administration’s vision for science Plus reactions from the research community and around the web United States to Cap ITER Spending; Domestic Fusion Research Would Still Suffer Adrian Cho 2:20 pm on 12 April To preserve fusion research at home the United States will limit its annual contributions to the international fusion experiment ITER now under construction in Cadarache France according to the budget proposed by the Obama administration for fiscal year 2014 That spending cap should prevent the ITER contributions from consuming the Department of Energy’s (DOE’s) entire budget for fusion research But that tactic also means that the United States would pay more in the long run to build its parts for ITER And the request still calls for closing one of three US-based fusion projects The rejiggering of the United States’s ITER payments comes in response to a budgetary train wreck that occurred last year In its proposed budget for 2013 DOE reduced funding for its fusion energy science program by a mere 12% from $401 million to $398 million But that budget also called for ramping up spending on ITER from $105 million to $150 million requiring a cut of $48 million or 16% from the domestic research program That cut would require shutting down one of three fusion experiments or tokamaks in the United States—the Alcator C-MOD at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in Cambridge The precise 2013 budget for fusion remains in flux however as last month Congress simply extended the 2012 budget through the rest of the current fiscal year which ends 30 September The proposed 2014 budget throws fusion researchers a lifeline The total fusion budget would go up from the current level by 14% to $458 million Spending on ITER would climb to $225 million per year However instead of rising further as previously planned in future years ITER funding would remain fixed at the 2014 level according to a budget briefing given by Edmund Synakowski DOE’s associate director for fusion energy sciences in Germantown Maryland To contain ITER costs the United States will delay the delivery of certain parts from the time ITER is supposed to turn on around 2020 to the time it attempts to achieve fusion between tritium and deuterium and realize a net gain in energy around 2028 says Thom Mason director of Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee (Oak Ridge is home to the US ITER project office) The original plan would have seen the US ITER contribution top out at $400 million per year Mason says "That’s the optimal way to fund the project" he says "but given the current budget situation it’s very difficult to see how that happens" But even with the additional funding and the cap on ITER spending the new budget wouldn’t undo the cuts proposed a year ago In fact in the new budget domestic spending falls another $15 million or 6% from the level proposed in 2013 So the new budget would not only pull the plug on C-MOD it would also require a cut of between 100 and 120 of the 170 researchers and staff members at MIT’s Plasma Science and Fusion Center says Martin Greenwald associate director at the center "The first thing the director of the program will have to do is send out 100 to 120 layoff notices" Greenwald says Given the lead time for such layoffs the cuts may come well before Congress does (or does not) approve the budget The notices could come "within weeks I would think" Greenwald says The proposed budget also does not guarantee that spending on ITER won’t climb in future years Unlike an ordinary project at a similar stage of development the US ITER project has no official "baseline" a document that lays out the schedule costs and yearly funding profile Instead DOE officials will manage the US ITER program as it goes focusing on a 2-year time horizon according to Synakowski’s briefing That lack of a concrete plan makes some researchers nervous "There’s nowhere you can go to get an official timeline for the project" Greenwald says "That’s appalling to me and other researchers" Laser Fusion Facility Faces Dimmer Spending David Malakoff 4:00 pm on 11 April A controversial and perpetually troubled laser fusion project would get a hefty funding reduction under the president’s 2014 budget request for the Department of Energy (DOE) The cuts to the National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California appear to be a direct consequence of the project’s failure to create a burning fusion plasma by its 2012 goal NIF has long had critics who contended even before the multibillion-dollar machine was built that it would never work After numerous delays and cost overruns NIF finally began operations in 2009 and managers set a 30 September 2012 goal of achieving "ignition" by using its 192 lasers to crush a tiny capsule of hydrogen fuel But the device fell substantially short of that goal and late last year officials told Congress that they weren’t sure NIF would ever be able create a burning plasma NIF advocates have argued that the project even if it didn’t achieve ignition is useful for conducting experiments that would help engineers understand and maintain the nation’s stockpile of nuclear weapons That is now NIF’s focus although some outside experts and members of Congress are skeptical of that use They also question the wisdom of giving NIF any more time or money to achieve ignition The budget request appears to reflect some of that skepticism To help pay for maintaining the nuclear stockpile during a time of austerity "the Budget proposes to achieve savings by reducing investments in the National Ignition Facility which failed to achieve ignition in 2012 as scheduled and by implementing several management efficiencies" it states In particular the budget calls for ending NIF accounting practices that allowed Livermore officials to charge some of the project’s costs to other programs—a practice that critics said effectively obscured NIF’s true cost It’s not clear exactly how big the proposed NIF cuts are because the project receives funding from several programs within DOE’s National Nuclear Security Administration which oversees the nation’s nuclear weapons program A Livermore spokesperson tells ScienceInsider that NIF’s operating budget request is $329 million for 2014 down 20% from 2012 Other NIF-affiliated budget lines also appear to take a hit but it’s hard to calculate exact numbers says Marylia Kelley executive director of Tri-Valley CAREs a watchdog group in Livermore that has been critical of the laser project But NIF "is taking a smaller hit that I had anticipated; these are very modest cuts considering NIF’s abject failure to achieve ignition" she says Her group wants NIF to be managed by DOE’s Office of Science for civilian research "We should run it as an unclassified user facility for 5 years and then do an analysis of what kind of science the nation is getting for its money and then decide whether to pull the plug" she says At CDC Budget Drops and Priorities Shift Jennifer Couzin-Frankel 3:25 pm on 11 April For the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) the 2014 budget request offers a mixed picture CDC’s budget continues to trend downward as it has over the last several years President Barack Obama is requesting $66 billion for CDC a drop of $270 million from 2012 But not every program will suffer: In particular the administration touted extra money for emerging and zoonotic infectious disease initiatives with a respectable increase of $70 million to $432 million Forty million dollars would go to an "Advanced Molecular Detection Initiative" which aims to do a better and quicker job of detecting and responding to threatening pathogens An increase of $35 million for injury prevention and control includes money for gun violence prevention research which was touted by Obama in January None of these dollars are new however "If you’re putting additional money into one category you’re taking it from the other" says Richard Hamburg deputy director of the Trust for America’s Health an advocacy group in Washington DC. his cabinet
