CERN eyes new collider more powerful than LHC
Zee Media Bureau/Shruti Saxena
Geneva: European Organisation for Nuclear Research`s physics lab CERN is now eyeing to develop a new Large Hadron Collider which will be seven times more powerful than the one which discovered the “God particle”.
The new circular collider is termed as the Future Circular Collider (FCC) and its main aim will be to help push the existing knowledge about the universe to newer heights. It has a circumference of 80-100km.
It is likely that the Future Circular Collider (FCC) will be placed at the same place as LHC and may use the LHC tunnel.
According to scientists, the planning for the new collider should start now as it took almost 25 years for the LHC to be built. The LHC is currently shut down for repairs and maintenance.
