Week 25: 7/22/2015 - 9pm PDT 7/29/2015

We're not kidding when we say CERN scientists and engineers really get into their work. Check out at this CERN scientist looking down at his.. uh, experiment. We're not sure exactly what this device is. There is a sealed chamber, but is it a vacuum, or some sort of specialized atmosphere for the research this scientist is working on? Either way, he seems very interested in whatever is happening inside this box!

So what's happening here? High energy physics, or some new coffee maker?

You tell us!

This week's prize is once again a Teensy 3.1 from The Hackaday Store.

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

The worlds first "electronic cigarette" circa 1980, with it's creator Joe (smokey) Barnes. The project was suspended for 20 years when his attempt to make bacon flavored e-juice burned down the CERN messhall.

"Yes, I know you get lonely,  I get lonely too, but I just don't feel that we are compatible.  You are just too transparent, I can see right through you, I need a little mystery in a relationship to keep things interesting."

Pablo was very passionate about his work.  When he finished a project, he felt he had to beak off the relationship very carefully, otherwise it may come back to haunt him.

Bob gazed fondly at his new baby. Who knew his new mutant power
would allow him to reproduce mini beer kegs. The frat parties and late night
programming sessions would never be the same.

Fred was ashamed to admit it, but whenever he worked on his pet project his mind kept singing, "The knob bone's connected to the wire bone. The wire bone's connected to the motor bone..."

On the slim chance my invention does not go down in history. I hope no one makes a Schrodinger's cat joke about it.

Sadly our first attempt at a T.A.R.D.I.S. was sorely lacking. Maybe it needs more controls around the perimeter !

Great Scott!! Marty!!  I call it the "Flux Capacitor"!  I was going to name it "Arduino", but I had a feeling we would have trademark issues with that name in the future.
