CERN is home to some of the brightest minds in science and the origin of some of physics' biggest findings—but this Tumblr serves as a reminder that particle physics is a very lonely pursuit indeed.

Lonely Chairs at CERN is dedicated to bringing the internet the "best of lonely chairs in the largest laboratory of particle physics in the world!" Which it does admirably well. CERN really does look pretty bleak in many of these images, though; but hey, at least that means there are no distractions from all that wonderful science! [Lonely Chairs at CERN]
