A high-energy high-luminosity polarized electron ion collider was recommended by the US nuclear science advisory committee to be the highest priority construction project in the US to be realized in the mid-to late 2020’s. A recent enthusiastic and positive evaluation of its science by the US National Academy of Sciences clears the last remaining hurdle for the project to take off on its path to realization. I will briefly review the science of EIC, and present the status of the accelerator and detector ideas being pursued for its timely realization.
