China’s Supercollider Higgs Factory Will Be Twice The Size Of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider … China could soon rival Europe and the U.S. as a global leader in the field of particle physics. The world’s most populous country now also aims to build the world’s most powerful supercollider to have a better understanding of the Higgs boson, the so-called god-particle. –Tech Times
China wants to build the biggest supercollider in the world and over in Switzerland, CERN reportedly wants to build a much larger supercollider as well.
We live in an era of Big Science that makes it clear only government and mega-corporations have the wherewithal to make scientific advances.

Such bigness celebrates the cult of “scientism”…
