The LHC accelerates two beams of atomic particles -- which have a pipe of their own -- in opposite directions around the collider. They are enclosed in a sheath of superconducting magnets and all of this is bathed in liquid helium at -271.3 degrees Celsius. Before the beams enter one of the detectors the two tubes come together so they can collide.
