<p >There are strong physics motivations, along with economic and cultural ones, for building a next-generation particle collider.</p >
There are several proposals under consideration around the world to build new particle accelerators that are even more powerful than the Large Hadron Collider. Aside from weighing the finances, the science community has also grappled with the question of whether there's enough of a physics case to be made for a next-generation collider.
