Counting House - Experimental Hall Control Room

Experimental Hall Control Room

Scientists can operate their experiment from this control room. They monitor over 30,000 channels of information to make certain that their experiments are running correctly. If something isn't working right, they can turn off the beam and go downstairs to fix it.

Each experimental hall has its own control room, each running independently from the others.
