I'm adjusting a deep water Cerenkov detector that is looking for high energy cosmic rays. Underneath the metal surface is 7500 litres of pure water. High energy particles emit flashes of light as they pass through the water; these were picked up by a photomultiplier tube which was under the box of electronics visible in the photo.
