CERN Physicists To Build Longest-Ever Linear Particle Accelerator | Popular Science

Quote:
Groundbreaking science is just beginning to emerge from the Large Hadron Collider, but physicists are already planning their next atom-smasher -- a $6.7 billion linear collider they hope to start building in 2012.
Quote:
But these collisions are messy, as the Independent reports. Brian Foster, the European director of the ILC project, compares it to smashing oranges together at 45 mph -- orange bits and juice fly everywhere.

Sometimes they use purified water in de-radiated tanks which they are in the process of setting up in my home town (the older ones were recently removed in preparation for lab expansions/development). Tanks are contained in a type of clean room so outside radiation is minimized and that is also why the tanks will be over 8,000 ft under ground/rock. The caverns the work will be done in are planned to be larger than Mt. Rushmore - that may not seem that big, but when you looking at a several labs over a mile underground it's going to be fergin amazin.

This neutrino detector and lab will be the biggest in the world and the science from CERN and DUSEL will bounce ideas/knowledge/experiments to expand subatomic particle knowledge.

They are even expanding a long distance internet cable to relay data to larger colleges faster.

Wow and after my initial post/reply I noticed the posters name - LUXhauler which is a wierd coincidence since they also sometimes use Xenon to detect subatomic particle in what is called a LUX-Detector. http://lux.brown.edu/
