SL-WEEK 24: Machines – The Large Hadron Collider

In response to Sylvain LANDRY, SL-Week 24: Machines.

Landry asked for machines that could be unbelievable and frightening. I think that would be The Large Hadron Collider.

I saw The Eye of Sauron when I faced this machine. I stood rooted to the spot in the museum trying to grapple with the number of electrical circuit components held on this thing. I wondered why the parts of the machine must be assembled to look like an eye. I wondered how this tool fitted into an even larger one to make Hadron Collider work. I wondered what mysteries this machine could unravel about the universe.

I am still wondering. Still impressed. Still frightened. Still in disbelief. Still confused. Still puzzled. Anything could happen.

The machine shown in my photo is only part of the large Hadron Collider. The machine has a diameter of about 1 metre although it seems small sitting in my photo frame.
