ATLAS is one of two general-purpose detectors at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC). It investigates a wide range of physics, from the search for the Higgs boson to extra dimensions and particles that could make up dark matter. Pictured here are archival photos in the elevator going down 100 metres to the ATLAS machine, at CERN.
