Where Legos and Particles Collide
Sascha Mehlhase, a postdoctoral researcher working on the ATLAS experiment, designed the model as part of an outreach project. Impressively, Mehlhase's replica captures all of ATLAS' intricate parts. Just building the initial 3D model took 48 hours, and then Mehlhase assembled all of the pieces in 33 hours.
Mehlhase hopes that his eye-catching model will inspire people of all ages. He says that he's also working on instruction manuals for those who are willing to spend $2,700 on Lego pieces for their own model.
