From Below

Looking directly up the center beam pipe. A radioactive filament inside the dome up top released positively charged particles down this tube, using the five million volts to propel ions and protons at close to the speed of light. Magnetic fields from electrically charged wires guided the particles through here and into the experiments below, which were most likely located in a "target room" on the first floor (a metal plate had since been installed in the floor when we visited).

Welds and patches, possibly from the 1943 scare, can be seen on the outside of the tank.
