The winners of the 2012 Global Particle Physics Photowalk were announced a little while back, and the selected photos show off the stunning and strange beauty of facilities around the world. Keep in mind that these incredible instruments are all designed for groundbreaking discoveries — the beauty is pure bonus.
Brookhaven invited amateur photographers to participate in the Photowalk last September and two images from the Lab — the tunnel of our Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC) and its STAR detector — made the Top 3 in the People’s Choice category!
To view the Top 39 photos submitted by laboratories worldwide, visit the InterActions Flickr gallery. Your eyes will thank you, we promise.

“You buy furniture. You tell yourself, this is the last sofa I will ever need in my life. Buy the sofa, then for a couple years you’re satisfied that no matter what goes wrong, at least you’ve got your sofa issue handled. Then the right set of dishes. Then the perfect bed. The drapes. The rug. Then you’re trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you.”
