Steve, alas, was unsuccessful; the SSC was cancelled, and the High Energy Physics community threw our collective eggs in the basket of the LHC. The SSC, at $\sqrt{s}=40$TeV, was designed as a discovery machine for TeV-scale physics. The LHC, with a design energy of $\sqrt{s}=14$TeV, is the best one could do, using the existing LEP tunnel. It was guaranteed to discover the Higgs. But for new physics, one would have to be somewhat lucky.
