China also wants to dominate the field of practical and theoretical sciences and is already improvising their design in constructing the world’s largest supercollider. From 2021, further investments and improvisations will be made upon this supercollider of China.
Reportedly, the initial kick required for this project is $6billion dollars, and according to me, I think the sum is pretty large for any developing nation to afford; whereas, the government of China is already willing to invest further even if it has to for developing China’s Science and Research sectors.
Moreover, there’s possibility for the investment to exceed $6billion as more resources are required. The total cost of the Large Hadron Collider, property of CERN eventually stood up to $9 billion dollars, three times larger than its budget.
The book called “The Great Wall to the Great Collider: China and the Quest to Uncover the Inner Workings of the Universe.”
written by a Harvard Professor named Shing-Tung Yau and a writer of Sciences, Steve Nadis. The upcoming supercollider of China will actually
“Transport physics into a previously inaccessible high-energy realm.”
Higgs boson, also known as the “God particle” is the root particle in constructing the universe and only a supercollider has the ability to formulate this particle by colliding two pieces of these sub-atomic particles at lightspeed!
Beijing’s Institute of High Energy Physics have constructed a mammoth ring underground that has a diameter of 50 kilometers; Large Hadron Collider at CERN has a diameter of 27 kilometers.
The proposal is yet to get approved by the government of China and the director of IHEP is highly optimistic and has already decided to locate the facility in Qinhuangdao that has the perfect geological structure and weather conditions for this supercollider of China.
The director of IHEP also said,
“This is a machine for the world and by the world: not a Chinese one,” he said, adding that physicists from around the globe have travelled to China to assist with the plans.”
According to other physicists of China, they are not entirely sure if this decision is feasible for the Chinese economy; as a result, Cao advised China to develop better computer chips and ball point pens for writing before building this gigantic supercollider of China.
