Abstract The Office of Science request for Fiscal Year (FY) 2010 is $4,941,682,000, an increase of $184,046,000, or 3.9%, over the FY 2009 appropriation of $4,757,636,000. Excluding Congressionally-directed projects and a reduction for use of prior year balances in FY 2009, the request is an increase of $262,733,000, or 5.6%, over the comparable FY 2009 level of $4,678,949,000. The mission of the Office of Science is the delivery of scientific discoveries and major scientific tools to transform our understanding of nature and to advance the energy, economic, and national security of the United States. A key strategy for accomplishing this mission and a hallmark of the Office of Science and its predecessors for more than six decades has been the support of fundamental science challenges and projects that are of great scale. The earliest example is the Manhattan Project, created to address a critical national security need during World War II. Today, the Office of Science continues this tradition by supporting significant major projects and preeminent national scientific user facilities to study the smallest constituents of matter, including some bits like dark matter, which are seen only indirectly by observing their influences; the most fleeting subatomic, atomic, molecular, and chemical transitions; and the atomic structure-function relationships of biological and inorganic materials that make up our observable worldall to transform our understanding nature and to use this new understanding to address the Department of Energys missions in energy, economic, and national security. Over past two decades, these activities have helped spur the worldwide scientific revolutions in nanotechnology, biotechnology, and high-performance computing. Together, these revolutions provide the practical basis for addressing the Departments missions. Coming late in the 20th century, these revolutions are a fitting close to a century that began with the unraveling of the microscopic constituents of matter and the development of quantum mechanics, which describes how and why the very small world behaves differently from our macroscopic world.
