Caption: Scientists at the Stanford Linear Collider (SLC) experiment working in the Large Detector control room. The scientist nearest the camera is wearing special glasses to enable viewing of a computer- generated stereoscopic view of particle tracks from a collision event. The SLC was constructed to produce Z-naught particles from the collision between electrons and positrons at immense energies, typically 100 GeV (billion electron Volts). The Z-naught particle is one of the moderators of the weak nuclear force, the force behind radioactive decay, and was first discovered at CERN in 1983. The first SLC-produced Z-naught was detected on 11 April 1989.
