CERN, the world’s largest particle physics laboratory, has opened its doors to Google’s Street View cameras, allowing viewers to peer inside the building and take a peek at the equipment being used.

Maybe you’re mystified and intrigued by the idea of the ‘God Particle’ and the LHC, or maybe you just want to see behind the scenes because you like pictures of big, scientific machinery. Either way you’ll probably want to take a gander at the images.

The pictures, however, were actually taken back in 2011 and took a full two weeks to complete.
