The Large Hadron Collider took a decade to build and cost around $9 billion. Most of that money came from European countries like Germany, the UK, France and Spain. Some believe that countries like the US and Japan might need to pony up for this second collider if it’s actually going to get built.
NOTE: Most of multibillion dollar projects are funded in order to gain more than pure theoretical knowledge.
For example, atomic research resulted in creation of the atom bomb and later hydrogen bomb.
Gain of Function Research is done in order to develop bioweapons.
It is very likely that CERN research is motivated by much more than observing high-energy particles…
The European Organization for Nuclear Research ( CERN )
The European Organization for Nuclear Research, known as CERN, is a European research organization that operates the largest particle physics laboratory in the world.
The convention establishing CERN was ratified on 29 September 1954 by 12 countries in Western Europe. The acronym CERN originally represented the French words for Conseil Européen pour la Recherche Nucléaire (European Council for Nuclear Research). CERN is an official United Nations Observer. The acronym CERN is also used to refer to the laboratory, which in 2016 had 2,500 scientific, technical, and administrative staff members, and hosted about 12,000 users. In the same year, CERN generated 49 petabytes of data.
The Large Hadron Collider, CERN
LHC cost around 9 billion dollars to simply build.
The new super-collider will cost 23 billion dollars.
CERN’s main function is to provide the particle accelerators and other infrastructure needed for high-energy physics research – as a result, numerous experiments have been constructed at CERN through international collaborations. The main site at Meyrin hosts a large computing facility, which is primarily used to store and analyse data from experiments, as well as simulate events. Researchers need remote access to these facilities, so the lab has historically been a major wide area network hub.
CERN is also the birthplace of the World Wide Web.
- The Large Hadron Collider took a decade to build and cost around $4.75 billion.
- CERN wants to build a new $23 billion super-collider that’s 100 kilometers long.

Apollo 11: How much did it cost to land astronauts on the moon?
In 1961, when President John F. Kennedy committed the nation to sending an astronaut to the moon “before this decade is out,” the federal budget enjoyed a surplus and economists were calling for government spending to stimulate the economy. Even so, the final price tag still boggles the mind. Between 1960 and 1973, NASA spent $28 billion developing the rockets, spacecraft and ground systems needed for what became the Apollo program. According to a recent analysis by the Planetary Society, that translates into an estimated $288.1 billion in inflation-adjusted dollars.
