Caption: MKD Kicker extraction system (in red) on a section of the 27Km circular tunnel beneath the French-Swiss border near Geneva. The tunnel carries the Large Hadron Collider particle accelerator which houses two beams of protons, within separate high-vacuum pipes, travelling in opposite directions. When experiments are running the beams are safely deflected to the detector or dumped out of the ring by the MKD kicker and its associated systems. It also acts as a safety mechanism for deflecting abnormal beams produced as a result of equipment failure or abnormal conditions.
