Google has expanded its unique Street View imagery with new content from inside the European Organization for Nuclear Research (CERN
) laboratories and the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). A team used a bike-mounted camera system, known as the "Street View Trike," to explore large parts of the LHC tunnel and the ALICE
"We're delighted that CERN opened its doors to Google Maps Street View allowing anyone, anywhere in the world to take a peek into its laboratories, control centers and its myriad underground tunnels housing cutting-edge experiments," Google said in a blog post
. "Street View also lets scientists working on the experiments, who may be on the other side of the world, explore the equipment they're using."
The project already includes 6,000 points coordinated with GPS locations, though CERN notes that the project is ongoing and will expand with more views of experiments in the future.
