New 31-km-long International Linear Collider ready for construction
Jun 12, 2013
  • Today the Linear Collider Collaboration published its Technical Design Report [PDF] for the International Linear Collider (ILC) - a proposed 31-kilometer electron-positron collider that will both complement and advance beyond the physics of the Large Hadron Collider.

Japan wants it just so that they can resurrect Godzilla. That's the real reason it's called the "god particle."

The SCSC was to be 87km in circumference, with an energy of 20 TeV.  Since a lot of the work has already been done, why not just open that project again?

Oh, too simple a solution, probably.  Let's spend trillions more for 1/40th the energy.

The SCSC is in Texas. I don't know how far along it was, but since it was canceled in 1993, 20 years ago, I'm guessing to restart it and upgrade it to modern technical advances might not be all that cost effective. I'm not a Physicist, but I can see arguments for not restarting it.

Assuming that the excavation is completely filled in, and they have to start from scratch, is it more expensive to use land you already own, or to buy land?
