Caption: Nuclotron particle accelerator, Russia. The section seen here is part of a ring that uses electric fields and superconducting magnets to accelerate atomic nuclei and heavy ions to near the speed of light. They will then be collided with other particles or a stationary target. The resulting release of energy leads to the creation of new particles, increasing our understanding of the fundamental nature of the universe. This accelerator, capable of energies of 7 GeV, is located at the Joint Institute for Nuclear Research, in Dubna, in Russia's Moscow region. Photographed in March 2010.
