Search for the Big Bang... but Large Hadron Collider is not large enough

When it was first unveiled, the Large Hadron Collider was heralded as the instrument that would produce a "tiny bang" and reveal the opening moments of the Universe. But the scientists behind the device revealed yesterday that they now want to delve deeper into the secrets of the Big Bang by creating an even bigger device.

Physique des particules : le Cern s'élargit

"...Le principal enjeu de ce grand jeu mondial est le site de la prochaine machine mondiale, post LHC. (...) Les alternatives se situent entre un autre LHC, dans le même tunnel, mais deux fois plus puissant avec des aimants en niobium/étain au lieu du niobium/titane du LHC actuel. Ou un collisionneur linéaire - deux lignes droites de 15 km se faisant face - pour accélérer des électrons. La technologie de ce collisionneur linéaire est elle aussi en discussion, entre un système dit ILC avec des cavités supraconductrices et CLIC un projet plus futuriste et plus puissant. Le match n’est pas joué...."
