CERN Planning to Build Particle Accelerator Four Times Bigger than LHC
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, CERN announced that they are planning to build another Particle Accelerator, which would be four times bigger than the Large Hadron Collider. The Particle Accelerator is the massive equipment, that collides the atomic particles rotating at near the speed of light. Currently, CERN owns the world’s biggest Hadron collider and has already been conducting a lot of experiments to find the smallest particles. Back in 2012, the scientists were successful in confirming the existence of Higgs Boson, which was a subatomic particle. With the Large Hadron Collider, they achieved the success which resulted in the Nobel Prize for the Organization.
Now, the organization wants the bigger and more powerful particle accelerator and collider to find more information about the Subatomic particles. To study the elusive aspects of the universe, the Big Bang theory, and other mysteries about the world. The physicists need a bigger Future Circular collider. The Large Hadron Collider is 27km circular tool build underground. The Future Circular Collider will be at least 100km circular and will be built underground. CERN released a report today, which contains the design details of the Circular collider. Almost 1,300 scientists took five years to release the four-volume report about the massive particle accelerator.
According to the report, the CERN would spend 5 Billion Euros to complete the project. Additionally, 4 Billion Euros would be spent on the first lepton collider. Also, 15 Billion Euros would be spent to build a Hadron Collider, which will replace the current one. The entire project is going to take numerous years and will start functioning in the year 2050. The current Large Hadron Collider has helped the scientists to find a lot of answers. But the same collider has left scientists with the mysteries, that only a big collider can help to get the answers.
