Caption: Magnetic testing at CERN. Monitoring equipment at the SM18 Magnet Test Facility at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. This facility can test superconducting magnets and instrumentation at low temperature and high currents. Magnets are used to control, contain and direct the particle beams in CERN's particle accelerators. 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. Many of the key discoveries in particle physics have been made at CERN. Photographed in November 2014.
