Scientists want to build a larger collider and they believe it’s safe

Scientists at the Large Hadron Collider are advocating for the construction of a new, even larger and more powerful super accelerator to aid in the quest for unraveling the mysteries of the Universe.

The proposed monster, named the Future Circular Collider (FCC), boasts a ring three times larger than its predecessor, spanning 91 km and buried deeper underground to prevent the escape of powerful radiation.

The estimated initial cost of the FCC project stands at 12 billion pounds, with funding expected to come from member countries of the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN). Detractors criticize the astronomical spending as “reckless.”

If the physicists’ ambitions come to fruition, the megacollider is projected to be operational by the mid-2040s, with super-powerful magnets installed in the 2070s to accelerate particles to unprecedented energies.

The ultimate goal is to provide evidence for the existence of dark matter, which, according to prevailing theoretical concepts, constitutes 95% of the Universe.

CERN Director General Professor Fabiola Gianotti lauds the future supercollider as a “wonderful machine” that could propel physicists toward a breakthrough in understanding the fundamental structure of our world. She emphasizes its potential to facilitate significant advancements in humanity’s comprehension of the universe.

However, concerns linger about the potential risks associated with experiments, including the formation of a mini-black hole. While the possibility is deemed very microscopic, it is not entirely dismissed.

There remains a cautious acknowledgment that, in the pursuit of knowledge, there is a minimal but nonzero risk of destructive consequences.

The LHC 2.0, or Future Circular Collider (FCC), will revolutionise the world of physics when it is up and running, and build on the work of its predecessor.

It will produce the power of 10 MILLION lightning strikes – enough energy to create a devastating black hole, reports

Researchers have discovered that it actually takes 2.4 times less energy to create a black hole, and with a more powerful particle collider, some fear that one could be accidentally made in the lab.

The study published in the journal Physical Review Letters reads: “We find that the threshold for black hole formation is lower (by a factor of a few) than simple hoop conjecture estimates, and, moreover, near this threshold two distinct apparent horizons first form postcollision and then merge.“

However, thanks to a process known as Hawking Radiation, experts say that Earth is in no danger of being swallowed by a man-made black hole.

Frans Pretorius, a theoretical physicist at Princeton University, told LiveScience: “The one common misconception about the small black holes that may form at the Large Hadron Collider is that they would swallow the Earth.

“With about as much confidence as we can say anything in science, this is completely impossible.”

We hope that this will be the case, and that scientists are right in their theories.
