Google’s Street view has made it’s way inside of shops, Mt. Fuji, and even to the watery depths of the ocean. And now they’ve some how gained access to CERN, the European particle physics laboratory based in the suburbs of Geneva.
So if you can’t afford a trip to Switzerland, and you don’t have the credentials to gain access to the CERN layer, you can now get an up close look at the lab, control center, and the complex tunnel system that plays home to the particle splicing experiments.
Other detailed views include the:
- 7000-tonne ATLAS detector
- Large Hadron Collider
- ALICE, a heavy-ion detector on the Large Hadron Collider ring
- The Compact Muon Solenoid (CMS), a general-purpose detector at the Large Hadron Collider
Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
