Big Physics Needs Big Trucks

The forward hadron calorimeter, called the HF, of the CMS detector is one of the smaller subdetectors. It is only 300 tons. The calorimeter arrived while was visiting. The photo below shows the HF and part of the team who built it.

This is the truck that brought it. Only half of the trailer is visible. There is another set of 10 axles inside the building.
