El nuevo acelerador de partículas ILC no estará finalizado antes de 2026, según François Richard

"...Según el experto, Japón se postula como el candidato con más posibilidades de albergar el ILC, ya que estaría dispuesto a contribuir con la mitad de la suma necesaria para financiar el proyecto, que contará con la participación de los grandes laboratorios mundiales. Richard se mostró esperanzado en que no haya disputa por la futura ubicación del acelerador, evitando así lo que sucedió con el ITER...."
