This spiral track was made in a bubble chamber--a particle detector used in the 1970s and 1980s--and it was made by an electron that was knocked out of a hydrogen atom by one of the upward-moving particles. To learn more about this track, visit the CERN Gallery of Bubble Chamber (BC) Pictures, go to "Gallery of BC Pictures," and click on "electron."
