The “Who Ordered That” Collider 


We plan to construct the next generation of colliders because there is new fundamental knowledge to be gained at the energy frontier — knowledge about both the Standard Model itself and the more fundamental theory that underlies it. I’ll survey some of the main open questions in particle physics and the motivation they provide for a qualitatively new accelerator complex: a high-energy muon collider. Such a collider, potentially at Fermilab, would powerfully complement experiments across the frontiers of particle physics and chart a convergent path into the future.
