Google has launched new Street View imagery from inside CERN, the lab near Geneva where the Large Hadron Collider resides.

"We’re delighted that CERN opened its doors to Google Maps Street View allowing anyone, anywhere in the world to take a peek into its laboratories, control centers and its myriad underground tunnels housing cutting-edge experiments," says Google's Pascale Milite. "Street View also lets scientists working on the experiments, who may be on the other side of the world, explore the equipment they're using."

Here are some of the available shots:

"For two full weeks back in 2011, members of our Street View team from Google’s Zurich office worked with our CERN partners to capture this incredible imagery," says Milite.

In May, Google shared a video of a physics teacher using Google Glass to conduct a hangout from CERN.
