It's a nice novelette / novella. Speculation about two parallel universes - one where the Superconducting Super Collider (SSC) was canceled, one in which the SSC is in its first year of operation. Somehow, the energies make the anti-particle beams disappear from the working SSC and appear in the canceled SSC. This causes issues on both sides. This also shows us scientists trying to work under less-than-enthusiastic government funding. It's short, so it's not a large time investment.
