Caption: CERN upgrade, LHC Long Shutdown 1. Welding being carried out on the main orbital by the SMACC (Superconducting Magnets And Circuits Consolidation) team at CERN's Large Hadron Collider (LHC) during LS1 (Long Shutdown 1). The LHC, the world's largest and most powerful particle collider, began operating in 2008. LS1 (scheduled from February 2013 to early 2015) is designed to enable operation at higher energies. The main work, as shown with the welding here, is consolidating 10,170 high-current splices between the superconducting magnets along the LHC's 27-kilometre circumference. Photographed on 29 April 2014.
