Caption: A scientist from the Stanford Linear Collider (SLC) experiment, seen with a computer-simulated collision event between an electron and a positron. The SLC produces Z-naught particles by this collision process which takes place at energies high enough for the electron and positron to anihilate one another, the Z-naught left decaying rapidly into another electron/positron pair or a quark/anti-quark pair. The Z-naught is one of the mediators of the weak nuclear force, the force behind radioactive decay, and was discovered at CERN in 1983. The first Z-naught seen at SLC was detected on 11 April 1989.
