However, America has weakened since 2006. So The Independent, a British communist daily, brings us fresh news that it's more likely that the ILC will be built at CERN, too. The construction could begin in 2012 and last for 7 years.
Forget LHC (The Independent)A 31-kilometer long tunnel would be 10 times longer than its older brother, a 3.2-kilometer long tunnel at SLAC, California, built in 1962.

The ILC would therefore be a neat gadget to connect two Swiss villages by a subway. The price would be below $7 billion, lower than the LHC. The total collision energy would be 0.5 TeV, upgradable to 1 TeV. But they would be very clean.
