So a movie intended for young kids would put images of the Large Hadron Collider for absolutely no reason?
In the movie, Kermit the Frog sets to reunite his gang of muppets, and his journey takes him all the way to CERN, on the border of Switzerland and France, where he finds Dr Bunsen Honeydew (the absent-minded but extremely intelligent muppet. You can tell this because he’s wearing a labcoat and glasses - but doesn't have any eyes) and Bunsen's long-suffering assistant Beaker.
Bunsen and Beaker are no strangers to fame. In a 2004 Internet poll sponsored by the BBC and the British Association for the Advancement of Science, Beaker and Dr Bunsen Honeydew were voted Britain's favorite cinematic scientists. They beat Star Trek’s Mr. Spock for the title, and claimed 33% of the 43,000 votes cast.
After their rise to fame on The Muppet Show, Bunsen (who has invented several nifty devices, like his foolproof gorilla detector) and Beaker (who usually has to endure injury-inducing experimental testing of said devices) have taken up posts at CERN, and by the looks of the scene in question (below), they were working for the ATLAS detector, one of four detectors, and the largest, that are part of the Large Hadron Collider (LHC).
