Caption: Wiring inside one of the instruments forming part of the L3 detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. L3 is one of 4 giant particle detectors at the LEP collider. LEP collides electrons & positrons accelerated to an energy of 50 GeV in a circular tunnel 100m underground & 27km in circumference. A collaborat- ion of 460 physicists from 13 countries, L3 is a cylindrical assembly of many types of apparatus - including hadron & electromagnetic calorimeters, drift chambers, & a time projection chamber - which fit together like layers of an onion around the point where the particles collide. Photo taken April 1989.
