The Solenoidal Large Intensity Device (SoLID) is a large acceptance detector capable of operating at the luminosity frontier. It was proposed to fully exploit the potential of the continuous electron beam accelerator facility (CEBAF) 12 GeV energy upgrade at Jefferson Lab. The pillars of its scientific program consist of a series of Semi-Inclusive Deep Inelastic Scattering (SIDIS) experiments to explore the transverse-momentum dependent parton distributions of the nucleon (TMDs) at a new level of precision and provide quark momentum tomography of the nucleon internal structure, a parity-violating deep inelastic scattering (PVDIS) experiment to explore physics beyond the standard model, and a near-threshold $J/\psi$ photo- and electro-production experiment to determine the gluonic gravitational form factors and address the origin of the nucleon mass. I will discuss the need and virtues of SoLID and its potential impact on the science program of hadronic physics and physics beyond the standard model.
