(OPEN):
ONE OF THE MOST-COMPLEX MACHINES IN THE WORLD IS GETTING AN 815-MILLION-DOLLAR UPGRADE:  THE "ADVANCED PHOTON SOURCE", AT THE U-S DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY'S "ARGONNE NATIONAL LABORATORY"--OUTSIDE CHICAGO--WORKS LIKE A STADIUM-SIZED X-RAY MICROSCOPE.  AND, DOCTOR STEPHEN STREIFFER ["STRIFE-FUR"]--THE DIRECTOR OF THE "ADVANCED PHOTON SOURCE"--SAYS THAT THE UPGRADE WILL ALLOW SCIENTISTS TO MAKE PIVOTAL DISCOVERIES, IN MANY FIELDS...

(STREIFFER):
"
SO, WE'RE JUST COMING THROUGH THE 50TH ANNIVERSARY OF 'APOLLO 11'; THIS IS A SIMILAR MOMENT FOR U-S SCIENCE.  THE IMPROVEMENTS THAT YOU HAVE WITH A NEW MACHINE LIKE THE 'A-P-S UPGRADE' WILL TRANSFORM THE WAY THAT WE LIVE--AND THE WAY THAT WE THINK--EXACTLY THE WAY THAT THE MOON-LANDINGS TRANSFORMED THE WAY THAT WE THOUGHT, IN THE 19-60'S."

(BRIDGE):
DOCTOR CHRIS FALL IS THE DIRECTOR OF THE DEPARTMENT OF ENERGY'S "OFFICE OF SCIENCE"...

(FALL):
"
I'M EXCITED ABOUT THE UPGRADE, BECAUSE THIS IS REALLY GONNA HELP ENSURE THAT THE U-S REMAINS AT THE FOREFRONT OF SCIENCE, FOR DECADES.  THE EXTREME LEVEL OF DETAILS THAT THE UPGRADE PROVIDES IS GONNA OPEN UP NEW FRONTIERS IN BASIC SCIENCE--WHICH CAN ENABLE DISCOVERIES ACROSS A WIDE RANGE OF RESEARCH, FROM MICROELECTRONICS TO POLYMERS TO QUANTUM."

(CLOSE):
EVERY YEAR, MORE THAN FIVE-THOUSAND RESEARCHERS CONDUCT EXPERIMENTS AT THE "ADVANCED PHOTON SOURCE".  TO LEARN MORE, VISIT "A-N-L"-DOT-GOV.
