Week 4: 3/10/2015 - 9pm PDT 3/17/2015

Here we go again! Time to get those captions ready! What do you think is going on in this image from CERN's archives?

Link to the original CERN image.

CERN scientists and engineers often find themselves in interesting positions. However, we're not sure if this CERN staffer ever expected to be quite where he is now!

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!

In an early version of the internet at CERN, load balancing the Internet tubes used to require crawling into the tubes with a dial indicator and a complicated centering apparatus. It really was a  pain in the butt.
