Can you spot the humans?

Quick facts:

- 20 years work-in-progress
- A team of 7,000 physicists from more than 80 nations
- 27 kilometers in circumference, 175 meters underground
- Facilitating head-on collision of protons, travelling very near speed-of-light
- Each tunnel is big enough to run a train through it.
- Temperatures generated: more than 1000,000 times hotter than the sun's core
- Superconducting magnets are cooled to a temperature colder than in deep space
