CERN and the LHC


In this column, however, I'm not going to talk about my own experiment here, but about CERN's fast-track plans for building a new and more powerful particle accelerator, the Large Hadronic Collider or LHC. The LHC is to come into operation around 1999. It is the principal competition for the SSC, the huge U. S. accelerator presently under construction in and around Waxahachie, Texas. [See my AV column "The Coming of the SSC", Analog March, 1988 for a description of that project.]
