In an effort that is seen as a move to overtake the Western world in science and technology research, Chinese scientists plan to build a faster electron-positron collider that is 60 times faster than the existing one to speed up the exploration of the Higgs boson.
Scientists at the European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN are planning to build a huge underground “atom smasher” machine that will be four times the size of the present Large Hadron Collide that is some 27km long.
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”.
