Hell NO there will be NO hadrons involved!

The whole point of the ILC is to build a lepton accelerator that generates nice clean data signals, unlike the cacophany of debris that comes from hadron-hadron collisions.

Colliding a lepton/antilepton beam at 1TeV C.M.E. is worth roughly as much as colliding a proton/antiproton beam at 6TeV.

Quantum Apostrophe: loonatic112358 : "maybe you could pick up the property from the unfinished Superconducting Super Collider in Texas cheap. Course fixing the inevitable decay will be expensive, but it's for SCIENCE!"

I'm in. All I need to do is be at the right place and the right time and know the right people and "luck" my way into a few billion dollars, then latch on to some geek mythology so I can get blind fanbois backing my every move.

The private particle accelerator market is huge, man, this is going to be the future.

As for repairing the SSC, can you buy a 3D printer for me? Maybe one that can print out niobium-based superconducting magnets with 2K helium already printed in? We'll never need spare parts again!

We'll corner the market on the private particle tourism business!

Wow. I don't think I've ever encountered this much acid, bitterness and negativity outside the anode of a lead-acid battery.

It pleases me that by mid century we'll have transitioned to nuclear and renewable energy, taken further steps into both outer space and mindspace, and have access to mature additive volume rendering in the home. I wonder what you'll be negging about then? Probably ranting that the generation ship they'd building in the asteroid belt will never work, or that mind/machine interfaces will never let a mind migrate into the machine...

Anyone else remember when the US was the front-runner of innovation?

I'm sure that the geologically-sound nation of Japan can be entrusted with a massive collider that, if we are to believe what we've seen in Europe, is shut down for years if even so much as one steel nut is loose.
