Photo taken on Aug. 26, 2010 shows workers load Alpha Magnetics Spectrometer (AMS), a particle detector designed and built to operate as an external payload on the International Space Station (ISS) to collect evidence of antimatter, dark matter and other hard-to-find elements of the universe over the next 20 years, in Geneva, Switzerland. The 7.5-ton AMS device, assembled at the European Center for Nuclear Research to study primary cosmic rays, will be taken aboard the last US space shuttle flight to the ISS late in February 2011.
