That looks elliptical not circular. Fu.E.C.
Know the quiet place within your heart and touch the rainbow of possibility; be
alive to the gentle breeze of communication, and please stop being such a jerk.

<<The Future Circular Collider (FCC) study aims at developing conceptual designs for a post-LHC particle accelerator research infrastructure in a global context, with an energy significantly above that of previous circular colliders (SPS, Tevatron, LHC).After injection at 3.3 TeV, each beam has a total energy of 560 MJ. At collision energy of 100 TeV this increases to 16.7 GJ. These values exceed the ones for LHC by nearly a factor of 30.

The FCC study explores the feasibility of different particle collider scenarios with the aim of significantly expanding the current energy and luminosity frontiers. It aims to complement existing technical designs for linear electron/positron colliders (ILC and CLIC). The study has an emphasis on proton/proton (hadron) and electron/positron (lepton) colliders while a hadron/lepton scenario is also examined. The study explores the potential of hadron and lepton circular colliders, performing an in-depth analysis of infrastructure and operation concepts and considering the technology research and development programmes that are required to build and operate a future circular collider. A conceptual design report was published in early 2019, in time for the next update of the European Strategy for Particle Physics.

The discovery of the Higgs boson at the LHC, together with the absence so far of any phenomena beyond the Standard Model in collisions at centre of mass energies up to 8 TeV, has triggered an interest in future colliders to push the energy and precision frontiers. A future “energy frontier” collider at 100 TeV is a “discovery machine”, reaching out to so far unknown territories. "New physics" seen at such a machine could explain observations such as the prevalence of matter over antimatter and non-zero neutrino masses.

The LHC has greatly advanced our understanding of matter and the Standard Model (SM), however it cannot confirm every aspect of the SM nor explore other key questions about the Universe. To find out more about dark matter, the matter/antimatter asymmetry, or the origin of neutrino masses, extended energy and mass reach and higher precision are necessary.>>
