International Linear Collider, which will surpass the recently launched Large Hadron can be built in Russia, because there is a need for this condition. So the director of the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, Academician Alexei Sisakyan.

New megaproekt physicists would collide electrons and positrons, overclocked to energies of about 500 GeV. Scientists believe that it helps to understand the nature of space and time, to clarify issues related to the origin of mass, as well as to understand the nature of dark matter and energy.

Already, several international institutions have expressed their desire to participate in the contest for the right to become a place for this construction. Playground in Dubna, which offers Sisakyan has several advantages.

"Only in Dubna of all the declared areas can be done almost ground construction of the collider. We have good geology, rocky surface. Roughly speaking, we need sorokakilometrovaya rock on which will stand this accelerator. We have such a condition. In the CERN geological situation is worse "- said Sisakyan in an interview with RIA Novosti.

Now, according to the academician, it remains to enlist the support of political leadership.

"I believe that Russia was and will remain a great power of science. But we need some kind of force is applied. It should be on some projects to put the state must have the will. Looking for a new space stations, observatories, accelerators," - concluded the academician.
