Driving over the detector

Did you know that when accessing LHC Point 8 you pass exactly above the LHCb detector? To demonstrate this to visitors, the LHCb collaboration has painted a silhouette of its detector on a 1:1 scale on the road leading to the experimental site. The components are painted exactly above the real ones located 100 m below.
