Week 1: 2/2/2015 - 9pm PDT 2/10/2015

Yes, you get an extra day this week.

What the heck is going on in this image? We've got a man operating robot arms, cameras, old school oscilloscopes, and lots of equipment in the background.

Add your humorous caption as a comment to this project log. Make sure you're commenting on this project log, not on the project itself.

As always, if you actually have information about the image or the people in it, let CERN know on the original image discussion page.

Good Luck!
