Lego Large Hadron Collider: ATLAS detector

This is almost too cool for school – a Physicist at a university in Denmark has put together a scale replica of a part of CERN’s Large Hadron Collider – the ATLAS detector.

Apparently it took him 81 hours to recreate a 1:50 scale model of the detector, using Lego bricks.  How awesome is that?  I wonder how long it would take to build a model of the whole LHC?
