The Muon g-2 ring at the Fermi National Accelerator Laboratory in Batavia, Illinois, US, photographed in August 2017. The ring operates at minus 450 degrees Fahrenheit and studies the wobble of muons as they travel through the magnetic field.

The Cern collider unit. Here,  two beams of subatomic protons are revved up to travel at 99.99999 per cent the speed of light around a 27km circuit, before smashing into one another

Astrophysicists puzzle over rotations of spiral galaxies and how light sometimes bends as it crosses the universe. It is as if there is something ther(...)
