It is worth mentioning that the largest collider currently running in the world is the European Nuclear Research Organization (CERN) Large Hadron Collider LHC. In 2019, it helped scientists discover the "God particle" Higgs boson (Higgs boson), this is the last elementary particle found and is considered to be the last brick in the standard model "building". When the LHC searched for the Higgs boson but had not yet achieved results, Hawking thought that the Higgs boson does not exist in the universe, and publicly stated that "the search for the Higgs boson may take 10 years to reach Let the world end in 100 years. "

Compared to Yang Zhenning's not optimistic about the development of particle physics, Hawking said, "Particle physics is definitely not a field that is about to die, and it is completely different from its appearance in the 1980s. Since then, the standard model seems to have basically changed. It has been confirmed that this gives the impression that the field has been completed. However, this is by no means the real thing. There are many phenomena in nature that cannot be explained by standard models, including CP destruction, neutrino oscillation, and dark matter, etc. At the same time, we still have a lot of theoretical problems: how to include gravity, the newly discovered dualities in quantum field theory, quark confinement, dark energy, black holes, and early cosmology. This is an extraordinary field. Ambitious young people interested in exploring how our universe works poses great challenges. "

British physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking published his views on the construction of a large collider in China.

Particle physics is definitely not a field that is about to die, and it is completely different from its appearance in the 1980s. Since then, the standard model appears to have been largely confirmed, giving the impression that the field has been completed. However, this is by no means the truth. There are many phenomena in nature that cannot be explained by standard models, including CP destruction, neutrino oscillations, and dark matter, and so on. At the same time, we still have a lot of theoretical problems: how to include gravity, the newly discovered dualities in quantum field theory, quark confinement, dark energy, black holes, and early cosmology. This is an extraordinary field, and it poses a huge challenge to young people who are ambitious and interested in exploring how our universe works. In this regard, China has a great opportunity to become a world leader-don't miss it! A good example is the construction of a giant collider that will lead high-energy physics for the next fifty years.

Should China build the next large-scale collider? It looks like it is still under discussion. More and more physicists at home and abroad have joined the discussion, and many of them are world-class physicists.

On the evening of November 24, at the invitation of Chinese mathematician Qiu Chengtong, British physicist and cosmologist Stephen Hawking published his Chinese version of China on the micro-signal of Mathematics and Humanities, a popular science magazine edited by Qiu Chengtong. The idea of building a large collider: "In this regard (note: particle physics), China has a great opportunity to become a world leader-don't miss it. A good example is building a giant collider, which will Leading high-energy physics for the next fifty years. "

On this topic, both pros and cons are full of science leaders. Qiu Chengtong has publicly stated on many occasions that he supports China's construction of a large collider, and has proposed that the vicinity of Shanhaiguan, Qinhuangdao City, Hebei Province be considered as a site. In September, physicist Yang Zhenning posted a public opposition to the construction of a large collider in China. The next day, as the person in charge of China ’s next large-scale collider project, Wang Yifang, director of the Institute of High Energy Physics of the Chinese Academy of Sciences, refuted and explained the objection raised by Yang Zhenning. So far, this dispute has become a topic of public discussion.

Particle physics is definitely not a dying field. It is however an entirely different enterprise than it was in 1980. Since then, the standard model looks to be essentially confirmed and this may give the impression that the field is complete. However, that is far from being true. There are phenomena that are just not included in the standard model. Some are CP violation, neutrino oscillations, dark matter. In theory, the problems are immense: how to include gravity, the recently discovered dualities of quantum field theories, quark confinement, dark energy, black holes, early-universe cosmology. It is a different world but one that offers huge challenges to ambitious young people interested in how our Universe works. China has an incredible opportunity to become the world leader here — don ' t waste it. A good example is to build the Great Collider that can lead high energy physics for the next fifty years.
