Website Detail Page

published by the CERN
If you'd like to learn about elementary particles and see some beautiful particle tracks, visit this site, produced by the European accelerator lab CERN.  The site presents a large number of photographs of bubble chamber (BC) tracks, many with a discussion of the physics. You'll find out how the BC works and also see a useful tutorial on reading BC pictures. The high quality of the images and the explanations of the events that are shown make this site especially valuable.
