Japan Decides Kitakami Mountains for Particle Collider
This morning, its recommendation has been declared by the proposed International Linear Collider's (ILC) the site evaluation committee in a press conference.
The recommendation said that the 19-mile-long particle collider of the next generation, if developed, should be in the Iwate and Miyagi prefectures' Kitakami Mountains.
As per the findings, the ILC is taken as a step ahead following the Large Hadron Collider. The same is being expected to boost and bump electrons as well as their antiparticles, positrons. The energy of acceleration would probably be around 500 billion electronvolts.
The choice has been made by the committee in a 63-to-37 vote. It was after a wary analysis of two candidate sites that were finalized. The sites included the Saga and Fukuoka prefectures' Sefuri Mountains and the Kitakami Mountains.
The geology of the sites along with their ability to aid the thousands of researchers and their infrastructure helped make the decision.
It is being said that the collision of the elementary particles might help in obtaining information, which is vague due to collisions between composite particles.
