In 2001 a cost analysis survey was conducted to build a 233km circumference tunnel in northern Illinois in which to build a Very Large Hadron Collider. Ten years later I have reexamined the proposal, taking into consideration the technological advancements in all the aspects of construction cost analysis. I outline the implementations of $e^+ e^-$, $p{\bar{p}}$, and $\mu^+\mu^-$ collider rings in the tunnel using 21${\rm{st}}$ century technology. The $e^+e^-$ collider employs a Crab Waist…

Luminosity and Crab Waist Collision Studies
In high energy physics, the luminosity is one useful value to characterize the performance of a particle collider. To gain more available data, we need to maximize the luminosity in most collider
