Caption: Large Magnet Facility at CERN, the European particle physics laboratory. This is where CERN's largest magnets are assembled and maintained. 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.
