The team at CERN hasn’t exactly made the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) a big secret. There are numerous documentaries that showcase one of our biggest and most expansive scientific endeavors of all-time. With that being said, documentaries don’t really allow us to slowly walk around the LHC at our own pace.
Now, thanks to the team at Google Street View and Google Maps, we can not only check out the Large Hadron Collider, but we can do it at our own leisure.
Google recently brought a team to the LHC where they filmed its long tubes and mechanical devices.
Viewers can check out the LHC, its 7000-ton ATLAS detector, and ALICE, a heavy-ion detector on the LHC ring.
Admittedly it’s a long and dizzying trek through the Street View setup in Geneva.
Google is making it easier than ever for the social conversation to arrive at various places with no passport required. From the LHC to a 360-degree tour of Galápagos Islands there is no exotic location going untouched by Google, and now by the company’s users.
