                             In Hamburg, there is a beautyful supercollider.
                             It has some huge rings under the city, the inner small one 
                             called DESY (now out of use),  PETRA and the largest is HERA.

Overgeneralized, here the scientists shoot electrons on neutrons (similar to an electron microscope), whereas in CERN (switzerland) the emphasis is on creating larger collisions between neutrons and trying to interpret the resulting huge data amounts by computing power.
