4 In the Abandoned Atmospheric Collider

In the Abandoned Atmospheric Collider

Posted on August 7, 2012 by kulichik


The accelerator was created in 1983. Its task was to produce the strongest magnetic field at that time. Its first section is represented by an underground channel that is around 3 km long. Its exploitation started in 1994. The device united an old proton accelerator U-70 and the new collider.

The tunnel in the picture is 50 meters deep.
