An accelerator, we should note, that would be four times bigger and up to 10 times more powerful than today's Large Hadron Collider, which is part of a particle accelerator facility on the French-Swiss border and which helped scientists in 2012 confirm the existence of the so-called God particle, the Higgs boson.
CERN, based in Geneva, said the particle's discovery had "opened a new path for research" and created a "door into new physics". The team at CERN is looking to the future with a much, much larger collider that is called the Futur Circular Collider (FCC) and has published the Conceptual Design Report (CDR) that shows different options for the future device.
The FCC study started in 2014 and stems directly from the previous update of the European Strategy, approved in May 2013, which recommended that design and feasibility studies be conducted in order for Europe "to be in a position to propose an ambitious post-LHC accelerator project at CERN by the time of the next Strategy update". The 100 TeV energy would allow more precise studies of how the Higgs particle interacts with other Higgs particles.
Under the new proposals, the new machine will be built in stages.
CERN said it was not possible to say exactly what benefits the new collider would bring to the world, but pointed out that the discovery of the electron in 1897 led to the electronics industry that now contributes $3 trillion annually to the world economy.
'The FCC timeline foresees starting with an electron-positron machine, just as LEP preceded the LHC.
Ultimately, the FCC would include a superconducting proton accelerator ring with energy of up to 100 tera electron volts, compared with a maximum 17 TeV in the current collider.
The FCC design study was a huge effort, possible only thanks to a large worldwide collaboration.
This would enable a rich programme to benefit the particle physics community throughout the twenty-first century'.
This could allow scientists to detect whether there are any holes in the Standard Model (SM) that would indicate a new kind of physics exists.
Officials hope for a decision by CERN's 22 member states within the next few years about the project that would debut with an electron-positron collider at an estimated cost of nine billion euros (NZ$15 billion).
The LHC is now closed for a two-year maintenance period, which will likely last until 2020. The physics program with the FCC would begin by 2040. The cost estimate for a superconducting proton machine that would afterwards use the same tunnel is around 15 billion euros.
CERN also outlined plans to building another machine which will be incorporated into the same tunnel and is expected to come online in the late 2050s.
However, the Sixers are yet to confirm the severity of the injury or Warner's expected return home to Australia. "I play golf right-handed, so I thought I might as well come and swing and clear the ropes".
This case study was published with one mission in mind - to be educational and warn others against trying similar methods at home. This time around, he had injected three " doses " of semen, entering both his blood vessels and his muscles.
This will mark Woods' 18th career appearance in the event, which traditionally has marked the beginning of his year. This will be his first PGA Tour event since he won the Tour Championship last September to cap off a comeback year.
The Celtics were doing their best to battle back from a 22-point third quarter deficit, but the team ultimately ran out of gas. With D'Angelo Russell on a roll and Kyrie Irving on the bench in street clothes, Brooklyn finally broke through.
This match marked Williams' first time at the Australian Open since she gave birth to daughter Alexis Olympia . When it comes to the slams, the 24-year-old hasn't made it past the second round since Melbourne back in 2017.
Cameron Norrie failed to build on reaching his first ATP Tour final last week as he was beaten in straight sets by Taylor Fritz. With such a strong record at this venue and exceptional form leading up to this match, Rafael Nadal will be very hard to stop.
Authorities arrested a man in Atlanta who allegedly sought to attack the White House and other Washington D.C. landmarks. Taheb told the Federal Bureau of Investigation source that "jihad was the best deed in Islam and the peak of Islam".
The organic biosphere experiment onboard consists of cotton shoots and some germinated plants in an airtight container. Among the first images and videos taken by the craft is an image of the Chang'e 4 lander, taken by the Yutu 2 rover.
It was claimed in the same report that after Mariah brought Stella aboard, the musical icon cut a good deal of her old team loose. According to reports, Carey filed a lawsuit against Lianna Azarian almost four years after hiring her as an executive assistant .
Prince Philip in auto crash near Sandringham Estate
A police spokesman said police and ambulance crews attended, and two people in one of the vehicles suffered minor injuries. Philip has since returned to Sandringham and has been seen by a doctor. "The Duke was not injured", the Palace told NBC .
'Out of control': Taiwan says won't bow to China pressure
But Beijing considers it to be a wayward province and has never ruled out military force to bring it under control. Beijing has stepped up pressure on Taiwan since Tsai, from the pro-independence ruling party, took office in 2016.
Westworld on mobile is closing for business
A couple of weeks ago, it was announced that Bethesda had settled its lawsuit against Warner Bros over the Westworld mobile game. Bethesda Softworks filed a lawsuit against the two parties responsible for the creation of the Westworld mobile game.
Bernard Tomic rips Lleyton Hewitt
Tomic has always been an outsider and is determinedly so now, claiming Hewitt has frozen him out of the Davis Cup team. So it's all a conflict of interest: the more they get here and to main draws, the more he takes.
Another Major Winter Storm Is Expected Just Days After Gia
A taste of winter is on the horizon as two storm system are expected to pass through the tri-state region in the coming days. Thursday's snow will be coupled with chilly temperatures, with a high of 34 in the city, mid 30s in the suburbs.
Shorter sleep a night may jam blood vessels
The study participants, average age 46, did not have heart disease at the beginning of the study. In addition, alcohol and caffeine consumption were found to cause short and disrupted sleep .
Shane Lowry eyes Ryder Cup spot after rediscovering his form
That matched the tournament record low of 62 established by Henrik Stenson in the third round of the inaugural edition in 2006. The top two golfers in the world are back in action this week, although their locations represent somewhat of a role reversal.
