CERN's Future Collider: Ghost Particle Search



  Mar 29, 2024

Future Collider: Ghost Particle Hunt



What is CERN’s new project about?

CERN is launching the Future Circular Collider, a supercollider aimed at detecting “hidden particles” which may make up the dark matter and dark energy constituting most of the universe.

How will the Future Circular Collider differ from the Large Hadron Collider?

The Future Circular Collider will be 1,000 times more sensitive and will use a different method of smashing particles against a hard surface, rather than colliding particles with each other.

What could the Future Circular Collider discover?

The collider could lead to the discovery of new particles that are not accounted for in the Standard Model of particle physics, potentially offering insights into dark matter and dark energy.

What are “hidden” or ghost particles?

“Hidden” or ghost particles refer to particles that have weaker interactions and are not detectable with current technology, hence their contribution to the universe is not well understood.

Why is the Future Circular Collider important for understanding the Universe?

The collider could help scientists understand the remaining 95% of the universe that is not visible – the components known as dark matter and dark energy.

When will the Future Circular Collider be operational?

The Future Circular Collider is expected to start operations in the mid-2040s and reach its full potential by 2070.

How soon will CERN’s SHiP project begin experiments?

Construction for the SHiP project’s new underground facilities is slated to begin in 2026, with the first experiments planned for around 2032.

Why is the Future Circular Collider’s potential discovery significant?

Any discoveries made by the Future Circular Collider could redefine scientific knowledge about the universe’s creation and our place within it, potentially leading to a paradigm shift in understanding the fundamental workings of the cosmos.
