Caption: Sextuple magnet at CERN. Resistive room-temperature sextuple magnet used to polish the extremities of particle beam clouds at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. Located on the Swiss-French border near Geneva, the particle accelerators at CERN are massive underground rings many kilometres across. Particles are accelerated and collided at high speeds, producing new particles that are examined with large detectors. Magnets such as the one shown here are used to control, contain and direct the particle beams. Many of the key discoveries in particle physics have been made at CERN. Photographed in November 2014.
