The Large Hadron Collider in LEGO

2011-11-10 10-21-41 Atlas Lego Model

The Large Hadron Collider has been recreated in Lego.

The Large Hadron Collider has many fans, and one of its biggest is Sasha Mehlhase, a physicist from the Niels Bohr Institute at the University of Copenhagen. Mehlhase has decided to help promote the LHC to students by taking the time to recreate a 1:50 scale model of it using Lego bricks. In total he spent 81 hours creating it, which was split between 48 hours of designing the model on his laptop, and a further 33 hours putting it together.

This should be a LEGO playset and minifig :)
