ATLAS End Cap Toroïd

ATLAS End Cap Toroïd
Originally uploaded by hyakuhei

Today was a big day for the ATLAS experiment, the moving of a huge Toroïd end cap for the ATLAS experiment. This huge part was slowly transported by two HGV cabs, one in front pulling and one behind pushing. This was a slow and steady operation, if the Toroïd leans further than 5 degrees the whole thing comes toppling down!

You can see the rest of the pictures in a little album I put together here :
