Is the LHC already obsolete?

Alternate collision method suggests LHC may have been total waste of $9 billion




There is an article on NewScientist.com that might seem astounding. It basically states that laser-based, desktop-sized atom smashers could be as effective or more at probing the secrets of the universe as the $9 billion Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in Switzerland, but for a tiny fraction of the cost.

After reading the article, the LHC will
continue to be needed. The alternate collision
method will complement, not replace the LHC.
In fact, CERN is planning to upgrade the LHC
over the next several years. This means that
the physicists still believe in the strong
potential of this project.
