The Large Hadron Collider (LHC) at CERN opens for the first time the "terascale" (TeV energy scale) to experimental scrutiny, exposing the physics of the Universe at the sub-attometric (?10-19 m, 10-10 as) scale. The LHC will also take the science of nuclear matter to hitherto unparalleled energy densities (low-x physics). The hadron beams, protons or ions, in the LHC underpin this horizon, and also offer new experimental possibilities at this energy scale. A Large Hadron electron Collider*, LHeC, in which an electron (positron) beam of energy (70 to 140 GeV) is in collision with one of the LHC hadron beams, makes possible terascale lepton-hadron physics. The LHeC is presently being evaluated in the form of two options, "ring-ring" and "linac-ring", either of which operate simultaneously with pp or ion-ion collisions in other LHC interaction regions. Each option takes advantage of recent advances in radio-frequency, in linear acceleration, and in other associated technologies, to achieve ep luminosity as large as 1033 cm-2s-1. An overview is presented here of the scientific motivation and technical status of the LHeC project.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/20.500.11851/4323|
