Abstract

Abstract The status of the lead beam construction and commissioning is reviewed. A very wide experimental program with heavy nuclei was approved at the CERN SPS for a dedicated study of ultrarelativistic nucleus-nucleus collisions. An arbitrary and very short summary of the advantages and motivations for the use of heavier nuclei in the quark-gluon plasma search will be presented.
