Abstract:

There has been continuing discussions on the possibility of erecting an ambitious cosmic ray experimental facility at mountain altitudes directed toward the study of strong-interaction physics in the energy range of 100 to 1000 GeV. Several specific objectives for such a facility are that nucleon interactions be studied on free protons, a liquid hydrogen target that the identity of the incident particle be ascertained and that momentum analysis of the incident and reaction products be precise to a few percent and that the total number of events collected at energies well above existing accelerator energies be over 10,000 per year. The report is a study of the technical and scientific questions encountered in the design of such a facility. Author
