In all honesty it looks just like most factories in one way or another – but what happens in the factory is out of this world! Check out more images over at Pierre Muth’s blog:
I recently wrote a project page about re-purposing a flip-dot bus display for the Anti-proton Decelerator control-room. It maybe interesting to show you with pictures how this synchrotron looks like.
The Anti-proton Decelerator (AD) is a 182 meter long synchrotron. Its aim is to lower the energy of anti-protons. In contrary of the majority of the existing synchrotrons, the AD is used as a decelerator, producing low energy anti-proton and send them to different experiments. For the details, have a look on the official web page.
The AD stands inside a concrete tunnel build inside a large hall:

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
