Eliezer Rabinovici, the president of the European Organisation for Nuclear Research (CERN) and professor emeritus of physics at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, has backed China's bid to construct the world's largest particle collider. During his visit to China in April, Rabinovici expressed confidence in Chinese scientists' capacity to undertake this significant project. Currently, CERN operates the world's biggest particle accelerator, Large Hadron Collider (LHC), housed within a circular tunnel spanning 27km in circumference. It located beneath the Swiss-French border.
