Caption: Computer simulation of a neutral Z particle "multijet" event in the L3 detector at CERN, the European centre for particle physics near Geneva. L3 is one of 4 giant particle detectors at the LEP electron-positron collider. The white circle & arcs represent an end-on view of the cylindrical L3 detector. The coloured boxes represent the energy deposited in L3's hadron calorimeter. The coloured lines are the tracks of particles created in an electron-positron annihilation that created a neutral Z particle. The Z decayed into a quark & antiquark which, in turn, decayed into other particles that travelled outwards in the clusters, or "jets", of tracks shown in the display.
