Caption: Construction of the ALEPH detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. ALEPH 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. ALEPH is a cylindrical assembly of many different types of apparatus fitted together in layers around the point where the particles collide. Taken in June 1988, the photo shows the super- conducting magnet coil (right) being inserted into the detector's magnet yoke & hadron calorimeter.
