Image of the week - ATLAS

(Click on this link or the photo above to get the rotating, 360-degree, panoramic view, with natural sound.)


In a continuing series, Peter McCready has been creating panoramic views of all the large experiments of the LHC. ATLAS (A Toroidal LHC ApparatuS) was shot using a Nikon professional digital, single lens reflex camera, attached to a tripod that allows for a 360-degree, rotating view. For each image, 102 separate, individual photos were shot,  then stitched together into one seamless 40MP spherical image. Each image takes as much as four weeks to complete in the his digital darkroom. When coupled with ambient sound that he recorded at the site, the user gets what McCready calls a  “Virtual Reality” experience.
