    6000 km ring = much bigger than where I live or the LHC!

  2. The primary mirror of the Keck telescope has a bigger area than my apartment. Maybe that really means I live in a small apartment.

  3. IceCube! http://icecube.wisc.edu/

    One *billion* tons of instrumented Ice (a cubic kilometer). I helped build it during the austral summers of 2005/2006 and 2007/2008 and ran it during the winters of 2006 and 2008. It was completed over a year ago and is running quite nicely.
