Title: A Very Forward Hadron Spectrometer for the LHC and Cosmic Ray Physics

Abstract

Charged hadron production in hadron-hadron collisions with longitudinal momentum fraction Feynman-x, x_F, between 0.1 and 0.9 has not been measured above square root s = 63 GeV at the CERN Intersecting Storage Rings. I discuss a way to measure this at the Large Hadron Collider at square root s = 13 TeV, which is 40,000 times higher in equivalent fixed target energy, and important for understanding cosmic ray showers.
