Recent developments in accelerator physics and superconducting magnet technology make it reasonable to extend proton-antiproton colliding beams from the 2 TeV of the Tevatron to 100 TeV in the existing SSC tunnel. The spectacular performance at the Tevatron of targetry, cooling and accumulation of antiprotons, and detection and control of the tunes of colliding bunches, provide a credible basis to project the potential for a luminosity of 1E35 at collision energy of 100 TeV. Nb3Sn dipole development has yielded field strength >16T, and 4-m-long coils using this technology have been tested successfully. A conceptual design is presented for a 100TeV collider in which a single 16 T magnet ring could be located in the SSC tunnel. Issues from synchrotron radiation, electron cloud effect, and beam separation are discussed.
