The Large Hadron Collider is an experiment that has managed to capture the imagination of a sizable portion of the general populace, so we assume most physicists would be a lot more interested in the experiment. That’s a toy everyone wants to play with, but few get the pleasure.

Physicist Sascha Mehlhase used about 9500 bricks and 200 Euros to build this recreation of the LHC. The construction is a 1:50 scale replica that is fairly amazing, despite of its inability to find the Higgs Boson or create tiny blackholes that would gobble up the earth.
