collider

From Inside Science, Oct. 11, 2019: Fermilab Director Nigel Lockyer is quoted in this article about the discussion surrounding the world’s next big atom smasher. Europe and China both plan to build one, but scientists are debating if it’s worth it.

Physicists are proposing a Future Circular Collider that can smash particles at an energy of 100 trillion electronvolts — seven times greater than that of the LHC. What could we discover using this 60-mile-circumference collider?
