Caption: Cosmic rays and magnetic monopoles research. The electronic network connecting the detectors of the MACRO (Monopole Astrophysics and Cosmic Ray Observatory) experiment in the Gran Sasso Laboratory, Italy, the largest underground centre in the world. MACRO looks for magnetic monopoles, exotic particles never seen so far, and high- energy muons produced by the interaction between cosmic rays and atoms in the upper atmosphere. The laboratory lies under 1400m of rock which has a low level of natural radioactivity and shields the detectors from low-energy particles created in the atmosphere by cosmic rays.
