How to build the LHC

If you found the Instructable on operating the Large Hadron Collider a bit complex, Ian O'Neill has provided much simpler assembly and operating instructions.

Thanks to Physics World for posting this where I could find it!

Wow, I like the point that it doesn't involve any digging. My parents are a bit too concerned about the state of the lawn in the garden ;). Maybe I should buy one the next time I'm in Ikea.
so what are you doing this weekend?

nothing... you?

aww nothin much, just building a 47 Km particle accelerator that flings atoms at eachother at just below the speed of light...

That would be seriously awesome. I wouldn't look for one this early in the game, though -- look how long it took them to publish on the LEM...
It's the great LHC, kelseymh.

No Nacho, we kinda distill atoms here...whoa, get off of my...
Its an LHC, Jim !
