pipes and insulation systems. The interior is cooled to liquid helium
temperatures, outside is room temperature. The supports visible at the bottom
pass less than 1 W!

complete junction equipment between assemblies in the ring. They must
withstand 5-8 cm changes in length of each assembly as it cools and heats up
during operation. Thus you see all the accordion connections and complex
junctions as you can see in the example that's cut open.
