11 The Unfinished Science Town Near Moscow

The Unfinished Science Town Near Moscow

Posted on August 2, 2012 by team

Near Moscow there is a monstrous unfinished hadron collider with a 21 km (!) tunnel 60 m deep.

“Glory to the Soviet science!”

But it’s not the collider itself but a development shop where dispersed particles fly to. Their speed is almost equal to the speed of light.

The accelerator pipe is covered with a thick layer of concrete.

The particles are sent here.

They say here works a man who once caught a particle beam right in his head, but do not worry, he is still alive.

The particles pass through some detectors, then this shield stands on their way. The shield has 1600 lead bars. Signals are received from them and from the detectors, they go to the so-called brain center to be analyzed.

Local electricians’ job must be hard…

Do you like industrial beauty as we do?

    Russian workmanship

    You can’t get a particle beam on your hand, accelerators operate in total vacuum because air molecules collide with them and stop them. Besides, every, day millions of high-speed neutrons cross our bodies and nothing happens.

    What happens if somebody accidentally removes one of these thousand cables and doesn’t remember which one?

    i suppose given the russian economy, it will never be finished?
