Same here, i have 72 sixtrack waiting for validation.


Now 86.
Seems that validator have some queues to solve.
Sorry I have to ask, what's that in your picture? Google image search says it's part of a bouncy castle. I thought it was the end of a waterslide, but there's no water. Is it a very small hadron collider piece?

Yes, my two sons during CERN Open Days 2019.
Not so small piece of LHC, you can see it on Google Earth (46°13'51.81"N
6°03'18.69"E)

16 metres long according to Google Earth. Is that accurate? What piece is it?

It's a retired magnet, mainly used to keep the beam on track.


Here are a few example links (you may find many more):
