Tubes

There are all the tubes, cables and stairways leading up or down somewhere at CERN in Geneva.

Low tech

Just outside of the LHC at CERN, Geneva, with all the expensive high tech sensors, accelerators, cables and other equipment, there’s just this hallway. Pretty low tech.

The Detector (3)

This is where the magic happens, at CERN in Geneva. This is the detector which will help find new particles (or help prove the existence of particles which have already been predicted to exist). What baffled me is that these sensors need replacement so soon, I didn’t realize all the collisions cause that much radiation.

Outside

Outside the building where the Compact Muon Solenoid experiment is housed. Inside, there’s radiation, new particles and high tech equipment. Outside, the weather is just nice. And the mountains too (there aren’t any mountains in the Netherlands).

Entrance

These doors in CERN at the CMS building, lead to the hallways that lead to the LHC detector. Technical schemas are all over the places, hard hats are waiting inside.

Detector

What we were really at CERN for was the LHC and its detector. This picture of an image of the detector already is impressive.

Nothing else matters

The Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer experiment actually looks pretty simple. On the left, matter goes in. On the right, antimatter goes in.

Space craft

What’s cool is that in the model of the ISS (at the AMS control center), you can se a space craft docked to it.
