"Magnets" I hear you scream... well again... the pulse horn magnet used to focus the J-PARC Beam is enormous and only bends the path of particles a little to focus them, and there we use huge infrastructure to provide coil currents of 300,000 Amps, so much infact that the thing sounds like someone hit a bit of metal with a hammer every time it is fired.

I will leave this here in regard to the T2K Beam at J-PARC for some information on just how big and how much detail goes into constructing it... I post it because it is far more complicated and complex than anything I have seen proposed anywhere on ATS, It took about 50 people years to build.
